I just finished this one up. Written by John Waldman, published fairly recently (but I forget the year) by Stackpole Books.

WHAT CAN I SAY? This is an INCREDIBLY TOUCHING TESTAMENT to the determination of Shaved Monkeys around the world to FIND THEIR WAY BACK TO US. If you're still sufficiently human in structure and function to be able to shed tears, HAVE FOUR HANKIES READY WHEN YOU READ THIS ONE.

I like the respect the author shows for the different types of fish around the world, and the GREAT INGENUITY needed to capture and eat them. He also shows proper respect for the many fish around the world who are more than willing to return the favor, by KILLING and EATING him. What's not to like about that?

My only quibble with the book is that Waldman could have fit MANY MORE TECHNIQUES into this book if he had combined all the different spearfishing methods into one entry. That's OK, though...I don't want him revealing TOO MANY SECRETS to his readers.
