The CDS lowered the price of this book to $25 recently. I had been looking at it but at $50, I wasn't ready to take a chance on it. When the price was lowered I purchased a copy and it arrived last week.
This is a great read! The historical timeline of cave diving was very interesting. The book is well organized and informative. Some of the biggest names in the sport are there as well as some of the lesser known (quiet types) that have made some great contributions.
I knew Forrest was involved in the early stages of Florida cave exploration. I knew Sludge had been around. After reading the book I was impressed with their contributions and love of cave diving. These guys have made some major contributions to training, education, and exploration of the Florida cave systems.
If you get the chance, read this book. If you are a CDS member it is an additional 10% off.
