There are three main directions with which a person can pursue the activity of diving. These are 'Commercial Diving' as a job, 'Military Diving' as a job/qualification to aid the Armed Forces in their aims and as a 'Recreational Diver' as a sport or hobby pastime. Tony Liddicoat is one of the very rare individuals who has pursued all three activities and has reached the top in each of them. In this book he writes down his progression through all three disciplines, managing to combine and mix all three during his nearly 50year diving career. As you will read, his diving adventures have taken him around the world, to every ocean and to many different lands. He has experienced the extremes of climate and terrain and has undertaken many challenges. These vary from diving, the inside of a Nuclear Reactor, placing and detonating explosive charges, searching for bodies in sewers or training potential divers on a tropical island. The book covers Tony's diving life and we re-dive all his old haunts with him, without exaggeration or embellishment. It prompted one of the typists to state, "I don't know how you're still alive?" such was the response when reading parts of the book.Sit back and enjoy.
