About this book

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 on the subject. The Diver's Handbook meets this need by covering everything from what equipment to buy and which training courses to attend to basic health and safety measures. Specialized diving options such as underwater photography, as well as wreck and ice diving, are also covered. In addition the marine environment is examined and described in detail to help divers gain a better understanding of the sea and the myriad fascinating creatures which inhabit it.

The Diver's Handbook is designed to be of equal use to both the novice and the experienced diver. Many divers learn only the very basics of diving on holiday. For them, this book will provide the theory behind the practice and help engender confidence. For the more experienced underwater explorer it will augment existing knowledge and offer fresh angles on the sport. Now fully updated by the author, this book also has a number of new images that feature the latest equipment and technological advances.
