    1. The weakness of this book is probably the subject at hand Captain Kidd, for all the interest in his character, is really not much of an exciting figure The only aspect that leads to his romantic imagery is merely the fact as to whether or not he did in fact bury gold, and if so where As the author Clifford himself writes, Kidd was far from pirate material, and his lacking as a true pirate captain and his indecision between being a privateer as he was hired to be and being a true pirate as well a [...]



    2. An interesting read for someone fascinated with underwater archaeology, ship wrecks and the drama of excavation permits.


    3. with Paul Perry Slight effort about attempt to recover Kidd s flagship from a real life Pirate Island is basically a high level overview of Kidd s career intertwined with Clifford s misadventures in looking for the ship with few results Superficial and ultimately disappointing effort left me questioning if this was really enough to be a stand alone book it would have made a decent National Geographic article.See my review of The Pirate Hunter The True Story of Captain Kidd which was also disappo [...]


    4. This was a very interesting book Having done a great deal of research on Captain Kidd while writing Pirates of the Carolinas I found the information was valid and comprehensive Also, I enjoyed the way Clifford shifted between his shipwreck expedition and the exploits of Kidd I enjoyed it alot and even learned a thing or two I didn t know about Kidd and all that s involved in salvaging shipwrecks.


    5. More about the difficulties of government permitting and the politics of treasure hunting The book is well written and a quick and easy read that goes a long way in shedding a truer light on the character William Kidd.


    6. The real story here is the difficulties Clifford encounters in trying to do his job the constant obstruction and logistical challenges give the behind the scenes story you never see on the Discovery Channel.
