John Bantin took some time off from his 25 year long career as a successful advertising photographer and television commercials director to go scuba diving. He learned to dive in 1979 and in 1992 it became his career. He has now spent over twenty years travelling the world, diving in all the best places, and gaining many different experiences underwater (not all of them good) which has furnished him with a vast store of anecdotes.
"This is one diving book that lives up to its promise - you'll be turning pages with all the urgency of a treasure-hunter with 30 bar left and one lift-bag to go!" (Diving Magazine) "Bursting with shipwrecks and sharks ... a celebration not just of the sea, but of the men and women who devote their lives to exploring its depths, sometimes at the cost of their own sanity. Strongly recommended!" (Scuba Magazine)
