Editor's Pick of the month

Diving In Indonesia Diving In Indonesia
by Sarah Ann Wormald

Indonesia covers a large area - an archipelago that consists of at least 17,500 islands. It's 3000 miles from Pulau Weh in the West to West Papua in the East, and nearly all of it has exceptionally good diving. A book that attempts to encompass such an area is very ambitious. Sarah Ann Wormald has concentrated on the areas that she knows, including Bali, North and South Sulawesi, Nusa Tengarra, Maluku and Raja Amat. The author writes with authority and the voice of someone who has actually experienced first-hand the places she writes about The maps are detailed, the photographs excellent. Whether you are interested in the macro-life of Lembeh, the mantas of Nusa Penida or the wobbegongs of Cape Kri, this is a useful volume in a format that can be carried with you.
