Book Review: Thailand’s Underwater World

December 16, 2011

 
Just in time for Christmas comes this beautiful coffee-table book highlighting the wonders of Thailand’s oceans and reefs. With photos by Jez Tryner and text by Chris Mitchell, Thailand’s Underwater World is educational as well as beautiful. As a matter of full disclosure, I should point out that I’ve known Chris for a few years, and have dived with him.

The eye-popping photographs in this book are what will get you hooked. Jez Tryner seems to have an uncanny ability to get up close and personal with the often skittish denizens of the deep.

Chris Mitchell’s text is readable while conveying a lot of useful information about each of the species covered. The handy information boxes at the end of each section will probably mean this book will become a fixture in most school libraries, but if you’ve dived or snorkeled around Thailand, you’ll almost certainly want this memento of what you’ve seen in your own home.
