Reviews
“Unfortunately, most divers and many dive professionals, appear to lack adequate knowledge of important diving medical and fitness-to-dive issues, including the prevention and management of DCI. It is important for divers and dive professionals alike to realize that they do not “know it all” when they finish their training . They should be made aware that there is much more to learn no matter what level they are at, and should be given the “hunger” and tools to continue their education. This book written by Lee Griffiths is one such tool.”
John Lippman CEO Divers Alert Network South East Asia Pacific.
