ultimate let down
on 7 October 2012
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!!
