    Review quote
    "...an excellent overrall introduction to these popular and varied waterways, particularly for the first time visitor, or those who have visited once and are looking for new areas to cruise." Waterways World "as a guide to the network of canals, it's a good, compact planner." Yachting World (June 2009) "For anyone lucky enough to be planning a cruise of the French waterways or an inland passage from the Channel to the Med, this guide - already a bestseller - is surely the first port of call." Yachting Monthly (June 2009) "An absolute must for anyone considering navigating these popular continental waterways." Canals & Rivers (June 2009) "The fact that Jefferson's 'Through the French Canals' is now published as a 12th edition is testament to its value." Royal Navy Sailing Association (Summer 2009)
