Ocean Gladiator: Battles Beneath The Ocean.
People used to think the earth was flat and the sea was squirming with demons. Spirited explorers have always dared to find the truth and put a face on the unknown, often rewarded only with ridicule.
MARK ELLYATT is to Scuba Diving what Captain Cook was to Yachting. In this book Mark recounts what it's like to journey deep into the belly of the ocean, but also explains the return journey from an environment where lack of preparation is rewarded with injury, and failure is rewarded with Death.
MARK has spent the last decade dedicated to finding and diving the deepest ship wrecks and exploring the farthest reaches of the vast and virtually unknown frontier that we all take for granted... The Ocean.
The surface of the Moon is more accurately mapped than even the shallowest seas on Earth. Scientists' understanding of what happens when humans go underwater is still embryonic at best.
Throughout the text Mark takes an often light-hearted look at Scuba diving in general and explores the extreme sport of Technical Diving - Where rules are constantly being re-written and the unlucky or stupid are lost forever.
A MUST READ FOR TRAVELLING ADVENTURERS OR HARDENED THRILL SEEKERS ALIKE...
