I quote a bullet point from the front cover: 'Through routes to the Med'.
The relevant chapter (15) consists of exactly 3 pages, and I quote from the chapter:
'The intention of this chapter is not to cover the various routes in detail, but to give some sound and very practical advice...' - utterly contrary to the promise on the front cover!
Sorry, but since my main interest was specifically to take a boat through the canals to the Mediterranean this section is utterly useless and not at all 'what it says on the tin'!
Otherwise the rest of the book is informative and helpful.
So, if like me you were hoping to learn about the various through routes to the Med, then unfortunately this is not the book for you.

It is a great little 'how to' book on the waterways and the regulations. Whether you're an avid boater or first time holiday cruiser I think you'll find some valuable tidbits, reminders, and rules. We paired the book with a Fluvial guide to the area we're cruising and we're really pleased.

It is OK, I wonder if a little dated now. But for the money and to add to the general collection of books on the European waterways it is worth having

This was no doubt adequate in its day, but its day was 50 years ago. It's ponderous, out of date, and full of dull and really badly printed photos by Anthony Armstrong-Jones (remember him?). All in all, it's not going to be of much use to anybody except an historian of the early days of pleasure boating on the French canals, from a British perspective.
