KIRKUS REVIEW

Each of the books in this series (a British co-publication) covers a particular industry from origin to implications for the future. The small print and large pictures tend to diminish what is really a clear, comprehensive text, aptly illustrated by adjacent photographs. In presenting the pearl's formation, growth, harvesting and processing, the author stops frequently to indicate the human involvement, historical and contemporary. All anyone might want to know about pearls, painlessly presented.
