Overview

SHARE THE LIFE OF AN UNDERWATER ADVENTURER

Gary Gentile has tramped the world in search of adventure. Many of his exploits have been related in previous books about wreck-diving, the great outdoors, combat, and courtroom dramas. The present volume continues in this vein as he reflects upon a host of expeditions and incidents in which he has been involved throughout the years.
Read about frightening wreck-diving experiences; about incredible rescues and recoveries; about being lost at sea; about exploring submerged caves in a remote corner of the world; about being marooned on an uninhabited island; and much, much more.
These are all brand new stories that have never been told.
In addition to some of his most personal experiences is a resounding condemnation of a blatant attempt of certain individuals to pervert the truth by fabricating tales about the destruction of the U-869.
Experience thrills of a lifetime; second-guess difficult decisions that made the difference between life and death; and perhaps most important, obtain an understanding of an aspect of diving that is too often overlooked: the camaraderie that creates bonds that last forever.
Much of the material within these covers is somewhat humorous: a lighthearted look at what divers take for granted, but which is generally neglected by reporters in order to emphasize danger and sell more copy. This attitude is shameful in that it sheds false light on an activity whose risk factors are reduced by training, expertise, and stern contemplation of the consequences of foolish or impulsive actions.
This sublime hodgepodge of epics and anecdotes will make you laugh, make you scared, make you angry, make you wonder, but most of all, it will make you think about what you might be missing.
