Description

The Complete Diver: The History, Science and Practice of Scuba Diving is a comprehensive guide to the sport of
recreational scuba diving. It is an important book not just for beginning divers and instructors but also for all who
are interested in diving, marine science and ocean exploration. The Complete Diver chronicles a fascinating timeline of
undersea exploration and examines the latest developments in technology that will allow man to probe deeper into the
vast expanse of innerspace in the future. The Complete Diver includes chapters devoted to diving history, physics and
physiology, diving medicine, health and safety practices for scuba divers, decompression theory and how to avoid the
bends, diving techniques, and the future of diving. Author Alex Brylske, Ph.D., is the most published author in the
field of recreational scuba diving, and one of the diving industry's most influential voices. Throughout the 1980s, as
Educational Program Development Manager for PADI, Alex designed and wrote many of the programs and materials used today
around the world to train divers of all levels. He has been the senior editor of Dive Training magazine since 1991. In
addition to his career as a writer and diving educator, Dr. Brylske is a Professor of Marine Science at Florida Keys
Community College in Key West, Florida.
