Reef Literature: The Reef Aquarium Volume 3

I'm looking into getting a newer reef book on home reef aquariums. I would just assume get books on coral, inverts, clownfish, etc...but I would like to start off with a newer read on the overall picture. I've already read The Contscientious Marine Aquarist by Robert Fenner and The New Marine Aquarium by Michael Paletta. I am more or less looking for something newer and I found this book called The Reef Aquarium: Volume Three by Julian Sprung, J. Charles Delbeek. It was published in 2005. The other two books i read were published 5-6 years ago.

Has anyone read this book? What did you think? They want $77 for it so I'd like to hear any reviews from people on this forum because I trust opinions here better than on Amazon. The reviews that i read were very positive.

I would caution you to see if amazon has an excerpt thats visable for sampling. I have vol 1 and 2 and I wouldnt really classify them in the same relm as the books you have already read. They are a bit more indepth.
