I don't know that I've ever read a better dive book or travel guide. The author covers every minute detail, and somehow, it still reads well--a fascinating and well-treated subject. David Leonard shows great wit and a solid knowledge of his subject.
The photographs are amazing, too.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Book July 28 2005
By A. Althani - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
One of the most informative books about diving in the Pacific , next to Tim Rocks lonely planet guides for diving and snorkelling in Micronesia this is the best , only this one accomodates all the islands in one book meanwhile lonely planet is done over three books .

I definately recommend it !

5.0 out of 5 stars Best dive guide for Micronesia March 9 2007
By K. E. Quill - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I went back and bought 2 more for my travel companions! We just came back from Truk & Yap and I never saw my book, it was traveling around our group so much! We are planning to return to Palau, so I bought extra copies as self defense! The best dive guide I have found to the islands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great info, Maps, & Pics Sept. 17 2005
By J. McGee - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wasn't sure what to expect when ordering, but am very happy with the purchase. The maps are great! I have lived in Guam & find that the info in the book is very helpful. I'm still learning my way around the dive world here & now know where some of these places are that people are talking about. It has also helped plan our next dive trip to other islands. Great info on Palau, Chuuk, & Yap. So much to see & so little time!!!
3.0 out of 5 stars A little out of date Sept. 20 2013
By JUDITH - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The descriptions of dive sites are good but you could be deceived into thinking places are not worth visiting - Chuuk is 'dirty' and Palau 'over-touristed' on the basis of this author's writing. The book is now quite old so things change and have probably improved. In places int is poorly arranged so that an article on Palau is cut by a smaller inserted article. I would leave out the whole section at the back. That is the most out-of-date part. I have seen better reads on the area.

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs to Do More Research Jan. 1 2010
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
While Mr. Leonard may have a good handle on the diving in and around Guam, he hasn't taken the time to research all of his findings. In his book he stated that the local military "rarely contributes to the local economy". Absurd. As a member of that military i know for a FACT that we are a vital part of the economy on Guam. We shop in off base, we LIVE off base, we eat off base, we PLAY off base. IF you can make a statement that blatantly incorrect, then what else in the book was "inaccurate"?
