Editorial Reviews

Zom Zoms
This is the kind of book librarians should know about, even if they do not purchase it for their libraries. Aimed primarily at the yachting and cruising community, it gives precise information on ports of entry, regulations, fees, visa or passport requirements, docking and repair facilities, and other items of interest to sailors. The coverage is the entire world, including the U.S Preliminary pages cover three topics: formalities, health precautions, and communications, this last dealing with ship-to-shore radio, the use of satellites for long-distance communication, and search-and-rescue operations. The remainder of the book is divided into 12 chapters, parceling out the world in maritime rather than political divisions, such as the North Pacific Islands, or the North Indian Ocean and Red Sea Interesting and sometimes important facts are provided for each of the nearly 200 countries or groups of islands. A paragraph summarizes the locale's present condition--rocky, fertile, forested, sparsely or thickly populated, and so on--as well as its history and present political situation, with occasional warnings, as in the case of Libya, that yachts are unwelcome. There is also a box of "Practical Information," which includes currency, business and banking hours, public holidays, local electric current, and addresses of U.S. and other diplomatic representatives in the principal city While some of this information about countries of the world may be found elsewhere, it is handy to have it all in one volume alongside information specifically for sailors. In communities on the eastern, southern, and western coasts where boating is common, this book ought to be in public libraries.
