About the Author
Phil Garner was born in San Pedro, California and has lived in southern California for most of his life. He has been diving the Palos Verdes peninsula for more than twenty years. Phil and his fiancee Merry Passage try to dive the peninsula every weekend. When he is not diving he is usually editing his underwater photos or reading about local diving.

So what about the book? A lovely compilation of 20+ years of diving an area, knowing it intimately and wanting to share that knowledge with fellow divers. Simply designed, easy to read, well organized by grouping dive sites, full of amazing photos and short commentary - all of which can benefit anyone wanting to explore the Peninsula.
My only complaint? It's about the most comprehensive book on the area and, as far as I know, about the only one in recent history! SoCal divers would do well by having companions like this for all the amazing dive sites in the region. We need Volumes 2, 3, 4.... Time to get busy, Phil!
It is worth noting that all Amazon reviews do not always relate to the quality of the books which are reviewed. There are some who utilize the review system in an effort to forward personal agendas against people he/she does not like. The one star review provided by Mr. James is one of those.
If you are looking for a great book about Southern California diving and enjoy wonderful underwater photographs, you'll enjoy Mr. Garner's book.
