    UNDER NORTHERN SEAS
              by Linda Pitkin
              Salamander Books Ltd 1997
              ISBN  0-86101-973-3

              Wow! was my first reaction. This is a coffee table book with large pages full of fantastic underwater photographs of the sea life around the British Isles, and is both a 'Work of Art' and the best advertisement for conservation and protection of out valuable marine wildlife habitats. The text is  well written and organised according to the habitats as seen by divers. All the photographs are good enough to grace any wall. It is an ideal Christmas present.

    If I was asked to recommend one book for the reader to be informed about the oceans of this planet and creatures that live in it, this is the book I would pick. It is absolutely packed full of facts with both colour and excellent black and white illustrations and diagrams. It is a comprehensive introduction and features the life below and above (sea birds) the waves. This well written reference book is extremely good value. No colour photographs though.
