About this book

In the shock of bereavement, Tim Ecott went scuba diving in the Indian Ocean. What began as an underwater excursion to displace his grief became an obsession that has shaped his life. In "Neutral Buoyancy" he shares his passion for the sea. Gripping tales of historical diving bells, Greek sponge-divers, World War II frogmen and record-setting breath-hold divers are laced with captivating accounts of the author's own experience underwater in an elegant blend of arcane history, vivid reportage and memoir.
The reader is taken from Ireland to Austria, Florida to Papua New Guinea and the islands of the Bahamas and the Seychelles. "Neutral Buoyancy" is a journey filled with exotic, eccentric human characters competing for space with misunderstood sharks, weeping turtles, smiling dolphins and erotically shaped sea slugs. This unique and inspiring insight into our relationship with the deep will allow even the most timid swimmer to lose themselves underwater.
