This is perhaps the best beginners' guide to keeping marine fish. It comes from veteran Dick Mills, author of a large number of fish keeping guides. The first part of this book tackles setting up a marine aquarium. It's well-illustrated and clearly written, so easy for novices to follow. The second part of the book describes some of the more common marine fish. As a starter guide, this is extremely helpful. Obviously, people interested in particular areas of marine aquarium life, like invertebrates will need more specialist works, such as 'What Invertebrate? However, it's possible to have too much information when you are a novice, and this book is pitched just right, covering the essentials without overwhelming you.
