A must-read from regular X-Ray Mag contributor Gareth Lock. This book contains more than 30 detailed stories from world-renown divers such as Jill Heinerth, Richard Lundgren, Steve Bogaerts and Roger Williams. The case studies and analysis show how experts can make mistakes and how they survived to tell the tale.
If you are a diver, much of what you learned about topics such as decompression sickness and narcosis in your scuba diving class is over-simplified and some of it is just plain wrong, as diver training agency texts have not kept pace with the science. Scuba Physiological provides us with a good summary of what we know, a glimpse of where current science is taking us, and some good tips to make us all safer divers now.
