Playing with the sharp end is a collection of articles from renowned photojournalist Gavin Parsons. Some are humorous, some serious, but all are concerned with Scuba diving (or perhaps bacon sandwiches and diving is a side line). Topics include swimming with a variety of sharks, swimming around an iceberg, investigating a 17th century shipwrteck and traveling throughout the UK in a battered van to dive in freshwater lakes.
The book covers locations as diverse as the United Kingdom, Egypt, Mozambique, South Africa and Newfoundland. This book is designed to entertain, inform and let you sit in a chair, on a plane or just on the toilet without being bored.
