The editor who permitted this book to be published in its present state should be sacked as she turned what is potentially a great book into an inaccurate presential mess for the following reasons.
1)the book has no table of contents,index,bibliography,or referances all of which are essential in a book such as this.
2)the section on Shibam and the satelite...

This review is from: Empty Quarter: A Photographic Journey to the Heart of the Arabian Desert (Hardcover)
The editor who permitted this book to be published in its present state should be sacked as she turned what is potentially a great book into an inaccurate presential mess for the following reasons.
1)the book has no table of contents,index,bibliography,or referances all of which are essential in a book such as this.
2)the section on Shibam and the satelite pictures of Mirab and Wadi Doon should be deleted as none of them are in the Empty Quarter.
3)the map on p14 should never have been used as it must have come out of some museum.There are excellent current day maps
For those who bother to read this book it is divided into 2 parts a)Exploration and b)Rab Al-Khali (the Empty Quarter)-this part has sub sections on water, oil,Shibam , Sheba,wildlife,camels and satelite pictures.
Definately not recommended,not worth a penny.
