Dear Readers -. . Book Review on Oxygen by William Trubridge. . Genre – Memoir. . I, personally bought this book without any recommendations, or, gifting from any book companies. . After viewing a television broadcast of our very own NZ deepdiver, William Trubridge on a couple of occasions, I had to buy this book. . “I had promised New Zealand that I would be back to try for the record again and that when I finally reached the mark it would be dedicated to everyone who had supported me in the process.” . I remember the failed attempt and I remember those words William spoke. . “This time, there were no hiccups and after being under water for 4 minutes, 30 seconds, I surfaced and claimed my seventeenth world record.” . I remember the triumph, the happiness and elation. However, it wasn't until I read Williams memoir, that I found out how hard this had been in the first place. . This memoir has stages that seperate readers can identify. Life as a child growing up on a boat, deep diving as a sport, ethnic and techniques used in his training and Williams affinity with the sea, dolphins in particular and other sea creatures. . I sincerely thank William Trubridge for opening up part of his life and letting us see how his life is. .
- Happy Reading
