Book by Peter Cunningham, Robert Mickey. This book is a must for those people who are interested in doing kickboxing, whether they are newcomers to the sport or intermediate fighters looking for great knockout techniques. The book is written in an easy to understand format with photos showing how to execute the kicks and punches. Before I read this book I knew nothing about fighting. But within two weeks of practicing these techniques I felt confident that I could defend myself if the need arose.

Peter Miller Cunningham (1789–1864) was a Scottish naval surgeon and pioneer in Australia. Peter Miller Cunningham was the fifth son of John Cunningham, land steward and farmer (1743–1800), and brother of Thomas Mounsey Cunningham (1776–1834) and of Allan Cunningham (1784–1842). He was born at Dalswinton, near Dumfries, in November 1789, and was named after that Peter Miller who is generally recognised as the first person who used steam in propelling boats.

Setting up a marine aquarium is straightforward. There isn't a need for the aquarist to be a scientist with deep knowledge, but to be successful there is a need for foundation knowledge

The very last thing most aquarists want, particularly novices, is complication; long formulas and very technical explanations add to confusion and could hide the straightforward steps required to put together and maintain a marine aquarium. Setting up a marine aquarium is straightforward. There isn't a need for the aquarist to be a scientist with deep knowledge, but to be successful there is a need for foundation knowledge. "Marine Aquariums - The Beginner's Guide" is written by a father and son with over 40 years experience between them. Written in a straightforward non-jargon way it advises clearly how and why. The book takes the aquarist through the process of starting a marine aquarium step by step from first thoughts to completion. The different equipment needed, maintenance, methods used and basically why are fully explained plus lots more. Over its 324 pages the book does two things, first it places before the aquarist all the information required so the often frustrating search for information is made unnecessary, and second it removes the confusion caused by techno-speak and differing opinions. There is a third effect and this is it allows the reason for the marine aquarium to surface from the very start; the aquarist enjoys the setting up process. When the setting up process is complete, the aquarist has a book to refer to whenever the need arises. About the Authors John Cunningham and Peter Cunningham, a father and son team are both aquarists, authors and editors who combined have over 40 years of aquarium experience. They both gain great pleasure from helping others in the marine aquarium hobby and do so verbally, via the internet and now via this guide.

  • I wish I would have read the reviews posted here. This book stinks. As another reviewer points out, the information is repeated several times. What the authors say, could have been summed up in a pamphlet. I don't know any more now than I did before I read the book. For example, the authors talk about what Alkalinity is. But they don't tell you what it should BE. OR what to do if the alkalinity isn't where it should be. Under "Water Parameters" there is talk of a "Table". I assumed it was a table of acceptable water parameters. No such "Table" exists in the book.
    The book is terribly written and contains no references. No references? How does such a book get published? There has to be references and citations. Not every snippet of information in this book is original. These guys didn't just come up with the whole concept of Marine Aquariums.
    Save your money and look elsewhere. This book is a joke. I am upset that Amazon.com even carries it.

  • The authors seem to be very knowledgable however the book is poorly written and poorly edited. It makes for a tough read... It contains good information and offers advice that you should consider, but it's not "a beginners guide"...

    In one place they say they don't want to seem opinionated and then they repeatedly offer opinions without explaining what's behind those opinions.

    Sections (they call them chapters) are short where they introduce a subject and then say they'll follow up on it later; but just in case you want to know, they offer their opinion on the best alternative without justifying it. They seem to offer good advice, not inconsistent with other books I have read (recommended below)...The authors do eventually emphasize planning, but they provide little guidance on how to go about planning. 1/2 way through the book, chapter 30 on page 149 of a 308 page book they introduce the topic "fail to plan and you plan to fail"... then list some of the things you should plan for...hopefully you didn't run out and take their early recommendations straight to your local pet store ...

    The authors should have planned their book a bit better- and whover edited the book (if there was an editor) should have advised them better...

    I am a beginner. I have never implimented a marine aquarium. I found this book to be full of advice, some of it reasonable, but of little help in planning or in organizing my purchases.

    The Conscientious Marine Aquarist by Robert M Fenner is more comprehensive, highly organized, and does a much better job presenting alternatives and explaining the attributes behind them. If you only bought one book, that would be the one to get.

    I also found The New Marine Aquarium: Step-By-Step Setup & Stocking Guide by Michael S. Paletta well worth the read, and also very organized and well presented. I would recommend both because they educate you how to make decisions for yourself and how to plan your aquarium. They walk you through the decisions step by step. If you read either of those, and do some research online to get different opinions, read through forums, you won't need this book at all ...

    On a positive note, the cover if fabulous!!!

  • This book was very poorly written in my opinion. I didn't get the impression that it was even edited at all. I am certainly no editor or English major but I was stopped frequently reading this book trying to figure out what the last sentence meant! The content regarding marine tanks was only mildly informative and helpful. I would not recommend this book though.
