Zaid Fadul is a medical doctor residing in the USA. An avid naturalist and photographer, he has logged over 2,000 dives spanning many dive destinations around the world and has authored two dive guides.Review:
"This book is a great tool for scuba divers and others who want to learn how to identify and learn more about tropical marine species. It's waterproof, compact, and best of all it has a custom retractable clip for your BC (Sold separately)! Well, that's not actually best of all. Scuba dictionary profiles 40 common species of fish, invertebrates, plants and corals with beautiful photos that show details of the species' features as well as behaviors to look for. Details include where to find each species, the best time to find them, and fast facts about each animal. The book also features conservation information and photographic tips. You'll be able to easily update your logbook with accurate identification and descriptions of the marine life you observe. Zaid developed SCUBA dictionary to help divers get more out of their dives. But I think the book is also a great tool to teach divers to appreciate marine life, which in turn teaches the need for marine conservation. More importantly, divers will learn how to interact with it in a healthy manner - both for the marine life and for divers. Though most divers are taught to not touch reefs, not bother marine life, etc. I've observed divers molesting marine life and crashing into coral reefs more times than I care to remember. I think Scuba dictionary is fun, educational, and useful. And the photography, all original by Zaid, is beautiful."
