    Scuba Diving Safety!

    I thought this book was great! I was amazed at how much useful information and tips on diving and scuba safety Dr. Yapor was able to include in this inexpensive book. The various lists of equipment and safety gear were especially helpful, as were the emergency procedure planning sheets included. I am sure I will refer to 'Essentials of Diving Safety' many times, and I plan to suggest this book to my diving students.
