Just what I was looking for!

I am a new diver, and I was immediately taken by the fun of wildlife identification, but I have struggled to find a good resource for beginners. The books I found were either a collection of specific fish, or these encyclopedic tomes that were just too much, at least for now. These little books focus on the categories of fish and the main characteristics to look for. I found it super helpful to start by sorting my little fish friends into categories, and then if the specific fish I saw wasn't in the book, I had a MUCH easier time researching them further, because I was able to figure out what category of fish they were. Additionally, while I had a minor issue with the shipment of my first books, the mistake was taken care of immediately and cheerfully. I'll definitely be purchasing the rest of the series as I get to explore further!
