    Well organized information that is written for BIOLOGIST
    The title of the book is Biology for the NON-BIOLOGIST. In other words, someone who wants to understand marine biology with no Biology background. The problem with this book is it seems the author took snippets of biological text and put them in a small book. The writing is still academic level as he uses plenty of jargon and marine biology nomenclature. I would say the pro’s of this book is that he places main subjects in a organized well understood layout.. it’s great information for a biologist and probably a refresher for them but it’s definitely not for a non-biologist.. you’ll find yourself having to google a lot of information to truly be able to fully understand what he’s getting at. It’s a shame, he had something good here.

    structure missing
    indeed an introduction into biology. but what I really miss is a bit of structure. It reeds like a pack of statements and funny facts (like the incredible ocean book from the same author – sometimes even the same text), but what is the pedagocal idea behind it? the first chapters describe some different genera. Interesting but why not start with an introduction or some sort of overview? then the author jumps to coral reefs, thermal vents and polar sea environments. Ok, and in the polar chapter also some mammals and birds are described, but why only the polar specific ones? aren’t they also part of the other marine ecosystems around the globe? Oh and somewhere inbetween there is a chapter about toxins.. ?It feels like the author just wrote down all that he knows from his experience (quite impressive I must say), but this is only part of what marine biology is about. So a lot is not described, and it leaves the reader (at least me) with a lot of question marks …

    Clearly and Concise
    A very good and thorough coverage of this series of marine biology. I found it a very clear presentation and easy to understand. I really like this book and I highly recommend it.

    Great Book!
    I knew nothing about marine biology and purchased this book hoping it help me out, as I now volunteer at an aquarium. I am so impressed! It’s written very well and easy to understand! I’m really enjoying it and learning a lot! I would highly recommend to anyone wanting to learn the basics of marine biology.

    Great read for future marine biologists / kids interested in the ocean and it’s inhabitants.
    My 12 year old is very interested in Marine Biology, so I was looking for the most uptodate, age appropriate book, to give him a realistic and factual idea of this science. It was a surprise Christmas gift and he LOVED it. So much so, he has already read it 4 times and it has still not been put on the book shelf! He explained to me how much he has learned from the book and how it has sparked his interest even more. So much so we made our first ever author contact, to let him know personally how much it had been enjoyed, and a few further questions, to which Mr. Caine graciously answered.

    Well written, but complete lack of illustration
    I love the language used in this book. Simple to understand, explains well the characteristics of every phylla/class of animals. However, I would generally not recommend this book, as the complete lack of pictures and illustration makes this read less engaging, and does necessitate frequent referrals to Google. A great pity because the writing was otherwise fantastic.
