Item description for Dive The World by Egidio Trainito, Kurt Amsler, Jonathan Bird, Brandon Cole & Eleonora De Sabata...

An invaluable reference for professional and amateur divers, this volume presents the extraordinary richness of the underwater world in elegant pictorial layouts. Selected for their geographical settings and biodiversity, 50 of the world's best dives are described in detail by an editorial board of internationally renowned professional divers, and illustrated with superb photographs. Organized geographically, there are chapters devoted to the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea, the Mediterranean Sea, the Red Sea, the Indian Ocean, and the Pacific Ocean. An overview presents the outstanding natural features and unique characteristics of each region, followed by in-depth descriptions of recommended dives within each area. The distinguished editors present a thoughtful analysis of every dive site, including a description of the topography, typical species of fish likely to be seen, and highlights that make each site noteworthy, such as frequent dolphin sightings, rare species, etc. A three-dimensional reconstruction of the seabed helps guide readers through each site, while sidebars provide such essential information as maximum depth, level of difficulty, visibility, strength of current, and best time to go. Throughout the book, remarkable close-ups and double-page spreads depict the wealth of wildlife divers will encounter as they explore these exceptional dive sites.

Reviews - What do customers think about Dive The World?

A re-hash of Best Dive Sites of the World.  May 15, 2007
Previously published under the title "Best Dive Sites of the World," this book is a rehash of old and tired material.

These publishers have a reputation for repeating information from one book to another without any thought given to the person who might buy their products.

There are several books currently available claiming to show the "top" or "best" dive sites of the world and this is a very poor attempt to compete by using a collection of whatever material was available in order to add something on the same theme. What a pity they did not read previous criticisms and "then" go out and find something new.

Even the front cover photograph is taken from the previous title "The Maldives Diving Guide."

Quite frankly, my dear, they don't give a damn!
