    I enjoyed this - seems self published and its a bit confusing that the individual chapters are all on amazon separately!

    This is about one of the most dangerous sports on the planet: cave diving. Just as some of us are driven to climb the highest mountains, these guys (mostly guys) are all about penetrating the deepest and furthest underground in flooded caves and streams.

    This book was about cave divers/diersYes, I said, diers, as in dying, because cave diving is a deadly sport. This book is full of cave diving/dying stories that probably have been told and retold at many of cave diver memorial services. Yes, I said, Memorial Service, because a funeral requires a body, and cave divers bodies are seldom recovered.

    The best history (inception to present day) of Cave Diving written. Divers and non divers will leave with a very well rounded under standing of a sport I have come to love.
