KIRKUS REVIEW

Another entry whose purpose is ""Adventuring with Safety under Water"", this has chapters by various authors on material important to skin diving and self-contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) diving to be used by teachers and students as a systematic approach for instruction. The information is scientific and technical based on findings and recommendations from divers and organizations throughout the country and is aimed at the commercial, military or purely recreational diver. Physical fitness with medical examination and reports; basic skills; physics related to diving and the medical aspects of diving; scuba apparatus and gases; underwater environment and marine life; first aid (stressing prevention as the first of aids); advanced and special skills; planning a scuba dive; organizing a diving club:- this makes up a manual and handbook for the do-it-right underwater adventurer. Careful and cautionary.
