Going Down: Reflections of a Reluctant Diver.
Hydrophobic, claustrophobic, not to mention sharkophobic... could someone like that ever love diving?
When Amanda Ursell was challenged to learn to dive, she was more than just a little apprehensive. A self-confessed scaredy-cat with a fear of enclosed spaces and a habit of attracting calamity, scuba-diving seemed like the last sport she would ever enjoy. Let alone become addicted to... Going Down: Reflections of a Reluctant Diver is a humorous look at one person's underwater journey of discovery, as she attempts to conquer her fears. From dealing with know-it-alls and crying underwater to being told that 'most sharks are vegetarian' and discovering the wonders of night diving, this is an inspirational story of expanding your horizons and finding a new passion in the process.
