|The glorious Gibsons|
A Gibson coup, the US liner Paris,
the largest ship ever to wash up on the British coast (1899)
|LIVING in Cagliari, Sardinia's capital, I had seen the Italian version of Egidio Trainito's Diving Guide to Sardinia in local bookshops, and had often wished it was available in English. So, of course, I was pleased to be asked to review the newly released English version.
This book is a superb piece of work, describing many of the better sites around Sardinia with high-quality photos, but I do have the odd grumble. Whether it was the author's intention to limit the depth of chosen sites, I do not know, but certainly many of the deeper, completely intact wreck sites have been omitted. In Cagliari Bay alone there are seven amazing wrecks.
