"Inspiring, uplifting memoir that will leave you in awe"
5 stars"

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
"Great gift."

Beautiful book and interesting topic for anyone interested in sports.


LEARN THE POWER OF THE HUMAN MIND FROM THE WORLD'S GREATEST FREEDIVER One of the most mesmerising books about the ocean you'll ever read... New Zealander William Trubridge has reached depths never thought possible on the precipice of low oxygen. In a sport where failure usually means blacking out, it is a freediver's daily life to contend with suffocation, narcosis, hallucinations, lactic acidosis, compressed lungs, and immense water-column pressure - all while diving into depths of ink black ocean. Exquisitely written, Oxygen is a mind-altering and immersive coming-of-age story about a boy who grew up on a sailing boat, with the sea his classroom and playground. It is about fighting the trappings of life on land, and pushing the limits of human physiology, to become the world's greatest freediver.
