There is something special about the carp - and there is an extraordinary mystique that surrounds the species and its history. In this book John Langridge goes to equally extraordinary lengths to unravel the legends, debunk the myths, provide everything you ever needed to know about the carp . . . and more. This is a once-in-a-lifetime book that will answer all those questions you hadn't begun to start thinking about and leave you in ever greater awe of this magnificent species. ' . . . a great story that no one until now has ever told so completely - or so colourfully - before.' - Chris Yates '. . . Langridge seized my imagination, before going on to discuss all the different kinds of carp, aquaculture, carp recipes and literature . . . when I reached the end of the book I was actually sorry to have done so. I would go so far as to say that Aphrodite's Carp is one of the best texts about fish I have ever read.' - Andrew Herd, Waterlog ' . . . a unique and totally refreshingly different type of carp book . . . which covers not only the carp's origin from Asia and how it spread across Europe and to our British lakes and rivers, but also the species' genetic diversity. A truly fascinating read.' - John Wilson, Sunday Express
