Regional maps feature specific dive sites (like the Umbria Wreck), to help divers select and locate the type of diving experience they are looking for. Icons identify wreck dives, dive centres and emergency facilities with decompression chambers. These maps are cross-referenced with site text entries describing diving each site, highlighting special features and profiling dive conditions. For those inspired to travel to any of the featured sites or regions, there is an appendix with lists of travel and dive information, climate, best time to go, contacts, dive operator and emergency facilities.

Dive Atlas of the World: An Illustrated Reference to the Best Sites does not fall in that trap, it actually lists several non-tropical dive sites and does a decent job at describing what kind of diving one can expect in as diverse sites as Malta, Maldives and Manado.
The pictures are excellent, but only serve as illustrations to the text. What I would have wanted to see more of was practicalities on travelling to the described sites. This information is now nested away in the back of the book. What I did like was the information on coral reef ecology, on oceanography and other topics all divers should be aware of.
Overall, I would strongly recommend this book to divers who travel, plan to travel or just wish to dream about travelling.
