I was just about to say "Fish Without a Doubt!" Rick Moonen is one of the best seafood cooks and teachers in US. And for this book, he moved into a New York apartment and cooked like a home cook, so the slant is totally from the home cook's perspective. This takes nothing away from his fabulous restaurant in Vegas, but that he understood to be really valuable it needed to be for "the rest of us."

Not exactly cook books but for someone moving to Boston I highly recommend two books by Mark Kurlansky, a writer I greatly admire: "Cod: The Biography of a Fish that Changed the World" which does include many recipes, and also "Fish Tail" which is about Gloucester.

I wrote my first cookbook, For Cod and Country, to be accessible for new and old seafood cooks alike! In the opening, "A Cook's Quick Guide to Fish" you'll find detailed descriptions of species, how to shop for seafood, and some of my favorite pantry staples-- all are great resources for a seafood novice.
