"This is one diving book that lives up to its promise - you'll be turning pages with all the urgency of a treasure-hunter with 30 bar left and one lift-bag to go!" Steve Weinman, Editor of Diving magazine; "Bursting with shipwrecks and sharks ... a celebration not just of the sea, but of the men and women who devote their lives to exploring its depths, sometimes at the cost of their own sanity. Strongly recommended! Simon Rogerson, Editor of Scuba magazine; "Bantin has compiled dozens of true tales that will fascinate and delight." Ben Davison, Publisher of Undercurrent Dive Guide.
