beautiful, not the last word This book has received such glowing reviews I felt the need to add a sour note. It is full of beautiful pictures and has lots of useful information, but it is not as exhaustive a reference as it would seem from its size. The chapters are divided between four authors, with uneven results. The water quality chapter wastes entire pages on step-by-step instructions on how to use a particular brand of water test (they come with instructions,we don’t need this in a book). The filtration chapter is devoted almost exclusively to a particular filtration system that chapter’s author designs and sells. On the other hand, most of the other chapters are at least adequate, and the koi varieties section is outstanding, with the clearest delineation of the many koi types I have ever read–anyone can tell a showa from a sanke after looking at the side-by-side comparison. This section alone makes the book worth buying.
A Koi Keeper “Must Have” I have a pond business, and I not only keep koi myself, but I have read several books on koi. This book is absolutely incredible. It has just enough of everything to be educational without being overwhelming. The material is presented in an easy to understand format, from the origins of the hobby to the present, and the pictures are spectacular. Each variety of koi is beautifully represented, and the chapters on nutrition and water quality are enlightening. I loaned my copy to a friend and have not gotten it back yet!
