SCUBA diving was one thing that I wanted to do before I die - you know those goals you make - the 'things I want to do before I die'. But, I was terrified of going in the water and having something go wrong. After reading this book, it helped me relax because it gave me a better understanding. Then, when I took my certification class, I was already 'ahead of the game' and I passed my test with flying colors.

This book was suprisingly informative and had great illustrations to aid one in understanding how to scuba dive and snorkle. It not only gave tips on how to get the most from this experience, but also helped in choosing the right equipment and vacation spot. I recommend reading it to anyone who wishes to explore the world underwater.
