Scuba diving is one of the world's fastest growing sports and, as a result, there is an ever increasing demand for authoritative, practical information about this challenging activity. The Diver's Handbook, New and Revised, meets this need, and covers everything from what equipment to buy and which training courses to attend to basic health and safety measures, as well as special diving options such as underwater photography, wreck diving, and ice diving. In addition, the marine environment is examined in detail to help divers gain a better understanding of the sea and the myriad fascinating creatures that inhabit it. With a comprehensive and up-to-date text by well-respected diving and conservation expert Alan Mountain, a practical fact-filled format, numerous information panels, and more than 300 high-quality photographs and illustrations, The Diver's Handbook is an invaluable addition to every diver's bookshelf. Alan Mountain is an experienced subaqua diver who has been diving since 1967 and has nearly 1000 dives to his credit. His interest is in natural history, with particular reference to the marine environment. (8 1/2 X 11, 160 pages, color photos and illustrations)
