"Overall, this was a tremendous effort and the editors and illustrator should be commended. This is a must have book for anyone with an interest in chondrichthyans, and should find a place in the libraries of any serious ichthyologist."

* The Quarterly Review of Biology *

"It is the first book to exclusively illustrate all the world's rays, and was edited and written by some of the leading taxonomic researchers in the field.... The book is certainly not the last word on this group, but rather as the editors themselves commented on in the introduction, is a beginning to lay the groundwork for future research on this group of fishes."
