Format:Paperback
The book covers the best dives sites around the world, with well written sections that describe each dive in a good level of detail. Having dived several of the sites, the photos and narrative capture the essence of each dive beautifully for both the experienced diver and non-diver. The tips on how to get to each dive site, along with a summary of the visibility, currents and depths really bring each dive to life.

Stunning pictures and inspiring writing from two very experienced divers make this a lovely book, and a good one for the coffee table!

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing! 15 Oct 2012
By Frufrub
Format:Paperback
Very disappointing. The information is thin and many of the pictures are very poor indeed. I had hoped for much better.

1.0 out of 5 stars ultimate let down 7 Oct 2012
By bart
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hello Everyone!
i am a diver and a photographer, i am far from perfection in both. but i am striving. this book may appeal to non-divers out there, but i doubt if any divers, photographers, adventurers would like it at all. the writing is terrible, misspelled, and not proof read. it is therefore providing inaccurate information about the sites, which can be potentially DANGEROUS! The photographs are of such poor quality that they show you the underwater world as a murky, strange place full of shadows and unfocused blur.
If you have a child who wants to dive and you want to discourage it, buy that child this book!!! the kid will be frightened or bored with the idea of diving.
If you are looking for an informative guidebook on diving in different sites around the world i would suggest Footprint's "Diving The World" or "Diving Southeast Asia".
The reviewers who like this book never read it, have no interest in diving or photography or adventure, bought it as a gift for someone else, or are using it as paper weight/shelf filler. don't waste the money, time and space.
have great diving adventures!!
peace
bart

This book has a lovely balance of stunning photos, practical information and it is written with heart. For the dives I wouldn't actually do (ie they are too cold!) I still got a real sense of the experience. This was written by people who love what they do.
