Chowdbury would have been better writing a magazine article if he had wanted to focus on just that fateful dive keeping it short and too the point Or advertise his book as an exploration into the diving community and it experimentation in new techniues during the late 80's early 90's He simply doesn't have enough material and your left with pages and pages of rather boring fleshing out It may as well be an autobiography on both himself and the Rouse's which is interesting at times but is not why I bought the bookAs another reviewer mentioned there is so much irrelevant information and bizarre tangents in an attempt to flesh out the book I'm reading a book on diving I don't wish to know about his fathers career as a scientist etc The are huge areas of repetition on dive tables gas effects under pressure how decompression sickness occurs once I've read it once I've got it I became frustrated when such information appears again and again and goes on for pages I landed up skipping through huge chunks as I'd read it all before in the previous chapterThe writing is very melodramatic and over the top at times Using 'war zone' analogies with reference to deep diving I found both cringing and uite insulting is merely one example I understand it is a very extreme sport and takes a strong minded individual to dive the way these men and woman do but the constant descriptive glorification regarding them is both cheesy and unnecessarySadly with his overly dramatic references and long winded writing style I feel Chowdbury has missed the mark with this book Although if your after a sort of semi autobiography and the challenges of pioneering tech diving it might be up your streetPhilip Finch's 'Raising the Dead' about Dave Shaw's final dive is a fantastic example of a book written around what some would deem a relatively short piece of subject matter It is informative cohesive gripping and to the point about diving to much greater depths without any glorification or melodrama If your after a non fiction thriller on diving you literally can't put down look no further
