    A Must Have Wreck Diver's Guide to Treasure

    When I first received my copy of The World's Richest Wrecks from Sir Robert Marx personally; I asked Bob how long it took him to write this book and he replied "All of my life Chief." I thought about this and after reading the book it made perfect sense to me. This book is the culmination of his life's work as a researcher, shipwreck explorer, and treasure hunter.

    For each body of water; broken down into New World and the Old World shipwrecks; Bob and Jenifer have written a summary of the richest shipwrecks that are still waiting to be found and recovered. The World's Richest Wrecks is much more than a reference guide to the valuable lost ships. The book is a primer that gives the reader a historical background on the economic and nautical activities during the days these ships sailed the open seas and the circumstances leading to the lost ships demise.

    The World's Richest Wrecks provides details on the individual wrecks; including when they went down, how much treasure was carried on board, the previous salvage efforts made on the ships, and what treasure is still waiting to be discovered and salvaged! The World's Richest Wrecks includes many nautical charts, old maps, and photos in B/W and Color of the treasure and historical artifacts that Bob and others have recovered from some of these wrecks.

    Sir Robert Marx, knighted three times by three different countries, is a diver, writer, photographer, and historian that has been researching and diving the oceans and seas of the world for all of his adult life and arguably has found more treasure than any other treasure hunter. The World's Richest Wrecks brings this lifetime of experience and Bob's vast knowledge of these wrecks to the reader in an easy to read and solid reference book treasure hunters, wreck divers, and students of history will want to read.

    If you have "Treasure Fever" and want to know more about lost shipwrecks; this book is for you! And if you find some treasure; remember Bob's words: "Treasure is trouble, and the bigger the treasure, the bigger the trouble!"

    Happy treasure hunting!
