Fifty Places to Dive Before You Die: Diving Experts Share the World's Greatest Destinations 

Don't Judge A Book By Its Cover

Short Version it was a waste of $25 :(

Long version:

I orderd this book online from after reading the editorial reviews

" The earth’s oceans hold many wondrous surprises—be they the small, colorful “critters” off the coast of Papua New Guinea, opportunistic red demon squids in the Sea of Cortes, or naval wrecks in the lagoon of Bikini Atoll. In Fifty Places to Dive Before You Die Chris Santella has invited diving experts from around the world to share some of their favorite destinations, so ardent divers can experience these underwater wonders for themselves—either on location in their SCUBA gear, or at home in their armchair.

When i got it and started reading, i was surprised by the shallow material and photos and no in depth analysis of any dive sitementioned in the book. The expert divers the author invited to share thier favorite sites must have been diving in another planet!! I have dove in many places around the world until i found THE DIVERS PARADISE NAMELY The RED SEA. I was really surprised, the author mentioned only 1 or 2 sites one of them is in Sudan and left 100's of Internationaly known dive sites in the Red Sea.

Maybe the only good thing about this book, it pounts out some diving site to see certain marine creatures.

This Book should be called 50 places you sould not dive before you die.
