Lawson Wood enjoys a much deserved fine reputation as an underwater photo-journalist and author and with the aid of his wife has produced yet another excellent product.
After the customary "How to use this book" (and explanation of the abbreviations and symbols used throughout), we have an introduction to the country which includes information on most topics the visitor wants to know followed by an equally informative introduction to the diving one can expect to find.
Then we get down to specifics. The next chapter details no fewer than 38 dive sites found around the coast of Malta. This is followed by chapters on Comino (13 dive sites) and Gozo (30 dive sites) giving a total of 81 sites altogether. The information on each site is brief and to the point with as many as 4 complete dive sites appearing on a single page.
Each of these chapters in interrupted with green pages on different subjects. These are a complete change of topic in the middle of whatever you were reading. These "breaks" include subjects like the Seahorse, the Hermit Crab, WW2 Wrecks, the Great White Shark and contain detailed information you might not necessarily bother to learn from elsewhere.
Finishing off with section on the marine environment, underwater photography & video and health and safety, it would seem that just about all the information the visiting diver needs to consider before and during a trip to the Maltese Islands is here and, when compared to other books which have recently appeared this is a good option.
I learnt to dive in Gozo and booked to go back later this year and needed something to whet my apetite - to reassure me that the Med wouldn't necessarily be too boring. After reading this with its detailed listings and gradings of the main dive sites of the Maltese Islands I feel confident of a great holiday
