Customer Review

on 12 August 2013
This is a must read for anybody interested in diving and is a brilliant read for those who aren't. The author's writing style is very approachable whilst incredibly informative. Technical terminology is explained relevantly to the situations the author recounts and the reader is always kept turning the pages following the limit pushing excitements. I could not not put this book down and together with "Into the Abyss" a great deal of history is recorded and recounted.

The pace of the book is fast and the themes vary cleverly from inspiring excitement to moving human tragedy. The first hand account of diving the Corry Vreckan Whirlpool where the sense of foreboding laid out on paper is equal to the tidal forces being described keeps the reader on the edge of the seat. While the moving description of a ships sinking retold by the author from first hand accounts given by WWII survivors is thought provoking and emotional.

A great book which I will no doubt be reading again.
