While this is still a good shell ID book, I did not find it as useful as some of the other shell books I own. I wish it had shown different color variants of the shells, and shown the shells from different angles (they did this with some of them, but not all). The pictures are really good, most are just not the best for ID purposes. I would still recommend it to someone if they did not necessarily care about getting their ID to a species level (they still probably could though).

This is a very good reference book. I’ve found it very helpful in identifying shells we gathered in Baja California. Most of the North American shell guides focus primarily on shells found in Florida and along the East Coast. This book had more west coast shell information. It would be nice to be able to find a book solely focused on the west coast but I haven’t found one that is still in print and reasonably priced. This Audubon guide is the best one out there.

You will love this book if you spend any time on the beaches of Sanibel, or Jamaica, or Curacao, or Barbados..... Yes, it is complete and the system Audobon uses is great for most of us who want to know what we just picked up. Enjoy!

I got this for a friend, who acquired a lot of unlabeled seashells at an estate sale and wanted to identify them. She said that she sat up all night reading it, as she was fascinated by the descriptions of the animals the shells came from. She was able to identify almost all of her shells, except for one or two which may have been from other parts of the world. This book covers saltwater mollusks of both coasts of North America north of Mexico, identifies many Caribbean shells which are found in Florida. Might be more useful if it covered freshwater mollusks, i.e. from the Great Lakes.

Young son loves book for beachcombing ID
Reviewed in the United States on October 24, 2018
My five year old loves seashells, and beachcombing. The pictures are very clear, and the organization based on shape is a nice touch. It''s also nice because it''s focused on N American shells, so we don''t have to flipped through too many pages to identify our shells.

Book is Great! Perfect to take with you anywhere on any coast of North America if you are hunting for seashells. Nice and small size. Compact. Very thick book packed with so many seashells all found throughout North America. Full color, crisp and clear photographs with accompanying information for each and every shell. I would strongly advise to take this guide along with you when you go shelling. It is very helpful. It is a field guide that shows you clearly what you are looking for, where to find it, or what you have found. It explains everything-how deep in the water, where on the beach,and how large it grows. Just a perfect guide. The best guide there is I think.

It is nice to know that you can actually depend on a brand name. I have purchased many of Audubon''s Field Guides on a very wide range of topics, and have never been disappointed. This book is no exception. All are made with high quality materials and very sturdy which comes in handy for a book you actually like to take along in the field with you. I feel that this book fits (and benefits) all levels of expertise. With the beautiful full color photography, even the complete novice can rather quickly identify most anything they will encounter. If you are a little more advanced collector, you can find the information also. I would recommend this book as "the one" if you had to narrow it down to your first book on the subject, or if you plan to build a more complete library.
