Diving For Pearls,
This review is from: Diver (Paperback)
I bought this book for two reasons - I've read most of the military memoirs from the ex-Special Forces guys, and I live right on the doorstep of the offshore commercial diving in NE Scotland - so I figured this book would be a good read for my bedtime wind-down. Relax, you're joking me! This book had me enthralled from the very start, with hilarious tales of Tony's antics as a trainee diver, moving through his career in the fiery world of UK military service, and onto his dangerous yet rewarding work in offshore commercial diving. What a pleasure to read, beautifully written with clarity and humour, Tony's stories are truly fascinating. To quote the oft used "you can't put it down" is an understatement! Heroic stuff at its finest, and one of the very best I've read. AN ABSOLUTE GEM!
