The Art of Diving: And Adventure in the Underwater World
By Nick Hanna & Alexander Mustard - published in 2008
Award winning photographer Alexander Mustard joins forces with leading author Nick Hanna to bring you this remarkable book which captures the soul of scuba diving and takes the experience of being underwater to new imaginative levels.
Scuba is one of the most popular adventure sports activities on the planet, with over 20 million people qualified to explore the world beneath the waves. More than just a sport and a physical challenge, scuba diving takes people into another dimension and exerts a magnetic influence which gets them quickly addicted.
Every dive is different, a fresh experience, enthralling us and drawing us back into the magic world of the oceans again and again. Once a sport dominated by macho feats of depth and endurance, diving has matured into something more meaningful--an art form requiring agility and grace.
Both author and photographer share the same fresh stimulating approach, breathing new life into such topics as keeping kit simple and perfecting buoyancy control as well explaining the art of fish watching and how to make the most of meetings with remarkable creatures.
The Art of Diving is also about the spirit of the seas, free diving, the spiritual dimensions of being underwater as well as considering the fate of the oceans and the threats facing the marine environment today.
Whether you are an advanced diver, aspiring beginner or have yet to experience your first dive, welcome The Art of Diving and adventure in the underground world.
