Book Overview

The real-world guide for divers who want to enjoy their sport to the fullest More than half of the 1.5 million people who achieve scuba certification each year are stymied in their pursuit of the sport because they lack time and money to enjoy the exotic diving experiences they've read about, and don't want to be confined to group dives. The Certified Diver's Handbook is the only guide to help them create their own diving adventures on any budget,...

What every new diver should know

This is a wonderful book for the newly certified diver, or for the older diver who has finished a refresher course. It covers a lot of the things that Open Water classes don't have time to cover in a lot of depth (no pun intended) but that are essential to safe, fun diving. The author discusses every topic of interest to the newly certified diver, from continuing education to selecting gear. The writing style is pleasant and easy to read. I would even recommend the book to those who are not yet certified, because it will give them a good overview of issues to consider as a new diver.

certification class--the practical stuff

I have been a certified diver for over a year before I read this book. I had even purchased all my own gear in that amount of time. I wish that I had read this book immediately after my scuba class because I felt the information was valuable in selecting equipment as well as discussing dive trips. This is the stuff that they don't teach you in class. The author's style makes it an easy read for any diver. Plus, he is even willing to laugh at himself from time to time. I am going to have my son read it next.

Great book!

Being a newly certified diver, I had the question "Now what?" This book is like having an experienced diver as a constant friend who never tires of giving advice (and sharing some great anecdotes!) I highly recommend it.

Read and learn to get the most out of your C-card

Learn to maximize those diving skills you were taught and truly make your diving adventures what they should be; safe and fun. Clay Coleman has put together his experience, skills, and plenty of helpful hints that go far beyond what you can ever learn in a dive course. Be ahead of the pack while developing your skills and planning your dive adventures. This book is a must for new divers as well as experienced divers.

Your "other" dive buddy.

This diver's handbook is truly another buddy and maybe your best one. It's packed with information and wisdom it would take many years and dives to learn all condensed and categorized while written in a relaxed and friendly manner. Who doesn't want to learn from that salty, experienced diver you come across on your adventures in diving? Here are all those questions answered and some you would not have thought of asking. Not a book to read and pass on but to be kept as a quick reference. SAFE diving!
