This book wouldn't be so disappointing if the title wasn't so misleading. What adventure? The author discovers nothing new and takes no risks. Sea Hunter? He is merely making visits to previously discovered shipwreck sites and gives his assessments. So what. For true adventure try any book by Robert Marx. And please, why must we always be told that tired old bureaucratic 'shipwrecks are sacred gravesites'. They are accident scenes, just like plane crash sites.

It was a bit descriptive, and skip the chapter about hitler, but it was great.
