I'll be doing quite a bit of cruising in the Mediterranean so this book was intriguing to me. Rod does a good job of explaining the facilities, anchoring and weather issues. The Mediterranean offers a really unique place to spend time as there is so much culture and history along its shores that you can spend a lifetime exploring it.
