    NW Recreational Diver

    I found this book disappointing, especially comparing to what I've read about it. All the information contained in this book is based on basic common sense, information you can read in any other dive publication, or are things that a good instructor would tell his/her students. Buying this book as 'ongoing training' material I believe would be better used on other dive material. However, it may make a good resource for those who haven't or are just starting a beginning SCUBA course.

    Dive Like A Pro is a great reference!

    I found this book to be very useful and easy to read. As a diver who hasn't been in the water for a while, I found the tips and advice very helpful. The topics are well organized, and broken down into chapters that lend themselves to quick reads while traveling or between other activities. A great addition to my library!
