Overview

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.
 
A specially created companion web site www.artofdiving.com tells you about the making of the book and is packed full of dynamic intent including a special zone with restricted access for members only—membership is FREE for readers of The Art of Diving.
 
And especially for keen underwater photographers the www.artofdiving.com photo gallery includes technical details and extended captions for each of the images in this book, some of which are also available to download as screen savers.
 
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.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Come, dive into Nick Hanna and Alexander Mustard's bright blue world. This is the best book about diving since Jacques Cousteau's The Silent World. Here turtles bow, flounders court, sharks skulk, and, best of all, divers leap, soar, and even meditate. Alex has a unique eye. This is dynamic underwater imagery at its best."
—David Doubilet

"The Art of Diving is the most magical, most beautiful, most insightful book ever written about scuba diving."
—Willy Wolk, Divester.com
 
"This book beautifully reveals the deepest secrets of our love affair with the liquid world."
—Tim Ecott
