Dude, I can already tell you that it is super! I wouldn't pay the crazy 135 € it costs on Amazon tho. That's just too much :what: . It is more of a booklet I would say. It has about 100 pages. But one can feel the love that went into the book and the lovely people who are behind it. I never thought there might be so much diversity in these pools.

So its more of a book for just leisure reading ya. These books are really costly. I'll probably stay tune more on this forum to learn instead. :smile: Thanks @Algae In Space

Well it is THE publication on the matter for laymen... :grin3:
I was thinking about buying more and reselling them but there is not a huge interest in this book and shipping is also a factor. There are about 200 left and they don't know when or if there will be a reissue...

Exactly. The book itself only costs about $ 15. But that's in Hawaii. I think most people who have Opae Ula don't care too much about background info.
