KIRKUS REVIEW

In 1935 Bill Barada took to the sea with a pair of homemade goggles and a spear made from a broom handle. He was a pioneer in a sport that had no precedents. Now he offers his experience and expertise to the novice explaining the basics of both skin and scuba diving, listing Divers Instruction Organizations, and then goes into ""fish sense."" Or how to spot a grouper that is trying its best to look like a lump of sand; grab a clawed lobster; wrestle a giant octopus; work your way through a kelp bed; hit a target in dirty water; acquire exotic sea shells; get within camera range and dozens of other major hunting techniques anecdotally illustrated for our last frontiers-men.
