The Scuba Diving Handbook
By John Bantin
Adlard Coles Nautial - £9.99
ISBN: 987-0-7136-8362-2
Paperback, 192 pages

The Scuba Diving Handbook covers diving from the very beginning of diving through to the latest techniques of scuba diving. Divided into nine sections that cover almost all aspects of diving, the book is simple to pick up.

Sections range from getting started to advanced diving techniques and advice on where to go diving. There are even a few pages on shark-infested water diving.

Included in the book are many facts and tips from the author’s 25 years of diving around the world, giving this book a feel of real knowledge and experience. It is well laid out with many colour photos to illustrate the points being made.

There is something of everything in this book, which should inform divers and non-divers alike. And even for those who would like to become professional divers there is much that is useful.

So if you have been diving, are thinking of going diving or simply wish to have an informative look at how diving has progressed from the early days - with the helmet that we all know from TV through to today’s modern and exciting scuba techniques - this is the book for you.
