This is a powerful story about a dangerous, beautiful sport and an unforgettable young man. Skolnick tells his tale with passion and affection for his subject, but also with an admirable journalistic integrity. In the process, he takes us to distant worlds - underwater universes most of us will never know - where humans are challenged to the utmost limits of being. (Elizabeth Gilbert, author of EAT PRAY LOVE)
Exhilarating and pungent ... Skolnick is an American sports and travel journalist, and One Breath could stand comfortably alongside classics of extreme-sports journalism such as Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air. (Sunday Times)
This headrush of an account isn't simply about Mevoli's life and death; it is also about the limits of human experience. It is halfway between an edge-of-your-seat thriller and a tragedy ... You don't have to be an adrenaline enthusiast to appreciate the menacing drama of his account. (The Times)

This is an outstanding book which offers an insight into what drives people to extreme sports (Abi Jackson Press Association, Sports Book of the Month)
