Brian, ever hear the joke about the crooked poker game but "it's the only
game in town"
There are errors, omissions, newer names for fish (seems to happen daily
now!) and a few poor photos but overall I find it to be one of the better
large books on killies. The Aqualog series is nice but other than photos
and some terribly general data via the symbols it provides little real
information. Scheel's Rivulins is probably a better prepared book but
changes have made it a more of a historical reference now. The Atlas seems
to be a takeoff of Rivulins with some new photos and information, typically
TFH. I bought it and if I did not have it, i would still buy it.
