  • Understandable. Written and explained in lay mans terms. If you cannot understand this, well I don't know what to suggest. It is really useful, and a terrific reference book. Well worth the money, a must for all divers.

  • Makes a lot of the diving science enjoyable and user friendly. If science is not you strong suit this book breaks the information down in laymans terms. Would recommend.

  • I guess you would say I just had to know the WHY??? I don't agree with PADIs no stop diving philosophy, but I guess they need to keep the tourists from killing themselves. THis book will reveal what is going on behind the curtain especially as far as nitrogen loading is concerned. I am not a medical professional just a diver

  • Unfortunately, this book is extremely simplistic - the basic dive books for entry-level divers (OWD for PADI, similar of SSI) can be considered academic in contrast to this one. Moreover - it contains several errors (I just skimmed 5 pages and found 2 major mistakes). Don't buy.

  • I was never satisfied with the basic explanations of the effects of pressure and depth on the body doled out in the standard course of instruction on Scuba. Finding a comprehensive treatment of the subject in terms everyone can understand became a personal mission. This is the book satisfied my quest for knowledge about the physiology of Scuba. A doctor explains what we know and do not know of the liquid realm's influence on the Scuba Diver in plain, straight talk. One amazing example is that we have no clue what causes decompression sickness or "the bends". We just know that it is correlated with absorbed nitrogen and that there are a number of models that can predict its onset using this factor. The book includes an excellent explanation of the algorithms used by dive computers to help us avoid this malady, and how they were developed. You will be a much more knowledgeable and aware diver, and therefore a better diver, for having read this book. Add to cart!

  • This book is absolutely packed with valuable information in an extremely readable format. I highly recommend it for both its' breadth and depth.
    When I purchased my copy, I actually received it directly from Dr. Bookspan, the author. Jolie was wonderful to deal with and had a real passion for diving and writing.
