["Life and Death in a Coral Sea" is] the absorbing story of the Cousteau teams' investigation of coral reefs in the Indian Ocean and the Red Sea. Cousteau is undoubtedly the best-known marine explorer in the world today, having been introduced to millions through his magnificently photographed television shows, and this book maintains his tradition of excellence. The style of the book is easy and lively and much of it reads like a diary. (p. 62)
