Format: Paperback
This book rants and raves about how inacccurate Shadow Divers is and blames Chatterton and Kohler for taking credit for things they did not do. What it seems to forget is that neither Chatterton nor Kohler wrote Shadow Divers.

If you notice, one of the other reviews here has been written by Gary Gentile - the author of the book. He gives himself 5 stars!!! Seems slightly self absorbed does it not!!??

Format: Paperback
this book is one mans vendetta and rant about another successful book which he tries to pull apart. He even details spelling mistakes in the book "shadow diverss" which is an excellent read and which I can highly recommend.

If you want to understand what I mean read the other reviews here, the author has even gone to the trouble of giving himself a five star review below whereas anybody reading this monologue would give it a negative rating. highly recommended to avoid.

Format: Paperback
Gary Gentile has a great reputation as an explorer and diver, which he has proceeded to sully by writing this bad tempered, petulant book.

A personal slight by one of the "Shadow Divers" means that Gentile goes all out to criticize and contradict the accounts of the Robert Kurson book. Unfortunately, this book is guilty of every charge he levels at the "Shadow Divers" in terms of lack of evidence, hyperbole and self-aggrandizement. The author makes personal attacks on the main characters in "Shadow Divers" that are unnecessary nor are they supported by anything more than the author's personal impression. Pettiness, jealousy and arrogance exude from every page of this book.

Whilst there may be simplifications in "Shadow Divers", this has been done to create a tremendous story that draws the reader into the tale. Gentile's book is unfocussed and rambling. It takes some commitment to read through a list of petty gripes - I wish I hadn't bothered.

Who cares if there are errors or assumptions in Shadow Divers? The fact remains it is a fantastic book, and a great account of the determination shown by two renowned divers.
