A well produced reference book by Rod Heikell, helpfully organised in geographical sequence around the Mediterranean it covers the coast lines of the entire sea from Gibraltar in the West to Lebanon and Israel in the East, from Montenegro in the North to Libya in the South.It also includes the Atlantic Islands of the Azores and the Canaries. It contains a great deal of useful information for someone planning to cruise at length in the area. Its extremely wide scope means it would be helpful for passage planning, say from Gibraltar to Majorca, but you would need the more detailed local pilot or cruising guide if you were planning a week of coastal cruising round Majorca. And indeed Rod Heikell himself advises that it be used in conjunction with one of his many other books.
