Thank you for bringing this up. I do watch the show, more for the human interest than the treasure. I am skeptical about most of the theories the show dredges up, so I am perhaps not the target audience for this companion book. Your review allows the possibility of finding entertainment in the island's mysteries without being cynical about how implausible it can all seem. An earlier review of the book is much more critical about its motives. www.jasoncolavito.com/blog/review-of-the-curse-of-oak-island-by-randall-sullivan A discussion thread about the show and/or the treasure hunt could go in many directions (such as how some of the team is falling into "reality show" staging) but a thread to discuss only the book might draw fewer comments.

That review is a book in itself...... and while I can understand his perspective, the book still offers the history behind it all. I enjoyed reading it because while RS might have leaned towards thinking there is something to be found at the bottom of the money pit, he did offer lots of information on what has been going on at the site.... Instead of watching all the seasons of the show, a quick read of the book offers it-- without the 'reality part'...
