Kevin Gurr is a diver whose reputation in the field of technical diving precedes him. That, however, meant that, in reviewing this book, I set out to be extremely critical. In other words, it was because of his reputation that I automatically expected far more from any book written by him than I would have accepted from others with a lesser reputation. I found nothing lacking in this work and there is nothing which will disappoint the reader.
I would have liked to list the chapter headings in order to give the reader a feel for the different areas of the overall subject covered but I cannot do so because there are far too many such headings and the coverage is complete. Which is great - because it helps me to go to exactly the right part of the book I need to study at any one time. Of course, my own conversion to technical diver is of no interest to anyone else, except that I am a diver of considerable experience who understands the subject - if not all the new techniques (yet!). This product is a valuable addition to my own further training and has helped me through a considerable learning curve. Furthermore, I have yet to raise any question which is not answered by this book.
In short, if you are thinking about taking up scuba diving, this is "not" the book for you. If, however, you are seriously thinking about extending your existing diving skills to technical diving, this book will probably be the best investment you could make. At first sight, it may appear expensive, but when one considers the wealth of information contained within, I think it will come to be regarded - over many years, as probably the best item of technical diving equipment you ever purchased.
Some of the photos are not very good quality printing so it can be hard to make out details like hose routing on twin cyl. ste up etc. But other than that i would recommend this to anybody looking to advance there knowlege of diving....
