This book has so much potential but falls far short. The list of 99 waterfalls is comprehensive, and there are heights given for each, but this is where the positives grind to a halt. There are very few photos, the directions are vague at best, the book is printed on stock that is one grade above newsprint.

The Bottom Line: I haven't managed to obtain a 2003 second edition of this book yet, but I suspect it has to be an improvement. Given that both are out of print, I'd spend my effort in tracking down the revision.
