YA-- An interesting, informative text highlighted with spectacular full-color photographs. Written from the points of view of a diver, a photographer, and a naturalist, the book addresses all three areas of concern. Stafford-Deitsch discusses the process by which a reef is formed and many of the photographs are accompanied by diagrams that identify specific types of coral. In addition, there is a helpful guide to reef fish that simplifies the bewildering array one might encounter. There are pointers on how to get better camera shots underwater and stories of personal diving experiences all over the world. Science, photography, and nature students will gain useful information from this attractive title. --Sandi Hammonds, W. T. Woodson High School, Fairfax, VA
