The biology of fishes by Harry M Kyle is similarly both full of facts about the mysterious life of fishes and contains details of their biology as well. Unlike the present day publications on fishes which merely record facts and figures, reading this books is like discovering an old gold casket left burned in the depths of the ocean for half a century. The book deals with fishes in a much wider environmental context and introduces us to each new facet in the life cycle of fishes with such ease that even a layman would enjoy exploring the world of fishes.

The style of facts in the book remain as interesting and relevant today as before, giving credence to the belief that a good book is one which withstands the test of time.
