ISBN 9783939767701, published in 2016 by ConchBooks, Hackenheim, Germany, hardcover in laminated boards, A4 size 21 by 29.5 cm.

Although the nerites like many other families of shells that are found in shallow often intertidal water are given little if any attention at all by the majority of shell collectors, this book may well be the one that will lead more of us to understand the beauty and the complexity of these shells. While most of the books that we have and use cover some shells in this family this is the first time to my knowledge that information about them can be found in a single book. To simply say that this is a superb book does not do it proper justice. It is nothing less than a comprehensive look and study of these shells that have been the focus of the author's work for a great many years. We owe Tom Eichhorst a tremendous "thank you" and hope that the second volume in this set will be on the way shortly.
