Well written and extensively researched personal odyssey,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Neutral Buoyancy: Adventures in a Liquid World (Paperback)
Neutral Bouyancy, is somewhat different to waht i had expected from reading various reviews and the book jacket, and thankfully it exceeded my expectations. The book is a history of diving interspersed with personal accounts and anecdotes, which balances nicely.
Being an avid diver i have often wondered about some of the early pioneers and evolution of the apparatus which is used, and this books answered a lot of my questions and filled ina lot of gaps.
It was interesting to read about Jaques Costeau, James Bond and other subliminal influences to my own diving ambitions.
Ecoot travels and dives inthe four corners of the earth, to research his book, and his passion shines through on every page.
a must read for british divers.
