This book is great if you want to learn a lot about geography There were so many places that I had never heard of and am still not sure where they are Would be great to read alongside a map or add maps to the book.I learned about a ton of fish while reading this book, and also have a ton that I still need to look up Definitely has some great first hand accounts and stories at each destination that will fuel your desire to dive .This book was really great. This is a great book for any diver s collection My husband and I began diving a year and a half ago, and have this book out on our coffee table Even our non diving friends enjoy picking it up and looking through the beautiful pictures. Beautiful and inspiring and will make you want to strip out of your work clothes and into a wetsuit. A great present for divers Beautiful photos and stories, dipping into this book always makes me want to go diving. Reviewed here 797.23 S234 2008 Not enough pictures, which I think are essential in this type of book It didn t convince me that I need to dive the places listed. If this book doesn t inspire one to dive, nothing will.
