Format: Paperback
When reviewing the "Hurghada Diving Guide" from these same publishers, I commented on how much of the information within that book was not only inaccurate but had also appeared elsewhere. I now have similar problems with this effort.

28 dive-sites are covered and these include 6 from the Straits of Tiran (previously covered in their "Red Sea Diving Guide"), 10 under the heading Local Dives (including "Ras um Sid (sic) - which is very different from the Ras Umm Sid (correct spelling) found in their Red Sea Diving Guide), 6 from the Ras Mohammed Area (yet again covered in the Red Sea Diving Guide.) and a final 6 sites under the heading "The Strait of Gubal" (sic - again, and that sounds just about right). The latter includes that perennial favourite the Thistlegorm, which now appears in at least four Red Sea titles from these publishers. Padding?, overlap?, or what?

Sadly, one of the very few interesting things about this book is comparing how they have changed their artistic depiction of the Thistlegorm over four books. You would have thought they might have got it remotely accurate by now - but not so.

The book also contains that shipwreck on Shag Rock. This is the wreck they call "Sarah H" in their "Red Sea Wrecks." Having now decided that Sarah H is the wrong name (they also made changes to their previously published shipwreck details in the Hurghada Diving Guide - except that those changes were wrong.), they avoid any need to complete even a minimum amount of research to discover the wreck's true identity and have now given this wreck the inspirational name "The Shag Rock Wreck." When this shipwreck was first discovered the finders promptly named her after their diving guide Sarah Hillel (Sarah H).

Format: Paperback
I visited the Sharm area in February 1999. We mainly dived local sites, plus Tiran, Ras Mohamed and the Thistlegorm. This is a fair cross section of the dives available and every one we dived was featured. Good site descriptions covering the terrain, route and wildlife. Some of the 3 D maps were not so easy to interpret. One of my freinds liked the book so much that I have to order it for him which I suppose is a reccomendation in itself
