The reviews for BIG: The 50 Greatest World Record Catches are pouring in, and the results are unanimous: BIG is a huge success!

As Lance Dellavechia of the Hudson Valley Independent raves, "BIG is a superb coffee table book" that makes "the perfect gift for any nature lover or fish person you have no idea what to buy for. If my dentist had a copy in the waiting room, I might not mind going as much. I sure hope my editor doesn't want this book back!"

Other publications, from the popular "Moldy Chum" blog ( to Bob Izumi's Real Fishing ( have lauded the new book for its comprehensive text, its entertaining historical photographs and, of course, Flick Ford's paintings, of which Dellavechia declares, "only a true fisherman would take the time necessary to honor each species."
