I have long been a fan of Mayol and his contributions to the community, so I eagerly awaited my copy only to find it poorly packaged and damaged. Barnes and Noble then sent out another copy which also arrived poorly packaged and damaged. They would not send a third copy, and offered me 10% off which I declined, but I did keep the less damaged book. They stated that they would not send a third because they had a limited supply and they were likely all damaged at the warehouse, this means they are shipping an already damaged book. Not what I expect from Barnes and Noble. This is a beautiful book and everyone who enjoys the water should have a copy. It is full of colorful pictures, and is well laid out.
