Recent events indicate that underwater activity may become vitally important for food and food production, oil and mineral reserves, military installations, and as living areas to relieve overpopulation. The underwater frontier rivals space in its potential. Therefore, this is a very timely book. The preface describes it as an edited collection of reviews; and the book essentially covers every aspect of diving and compressed air work. Most of the chapters are extensively referenced, and there is little overlap or duplication.
The title is somewhat misleading because the book involves as much physics and engineering as it does physiology and medicine.
