Worth a listen
For those who enjoy knowing about "things" which most people have no idea about, this is a good book. It delves into the world of underwater archeology and treasure hunting within the realm of 500 year old shipwrecks containing valuable Chinese and Vietnamese porcelain. The personality conflicts and risks involved are all painstakingly laid out. Also very interesting is the description of "saturation diving", which is a requirement during such expeditions. The book kept my interest, mainly because I like to be the only person in the room who can talk about Vietnamese pottery. But if you are expecting "Shadow Divers" part II, forget it, that book was five stars and in an altogether higher classification than this one.

Mediocrity at it's best!
Unless you are in this field, I would recommend avoiding this one. I'm really not hard to please either. Good to go to sleep by. Reader doesn't help the situation. Maybe the abridged copy would have been better, I just like to get quantity and quality for my credits
