IPOD plus headphones at 3 AM....I couldn't stop listening to this superb story of adventure, history, courage, tenacity....The author superbly weaves several tales together to create such a beautiful fabric of a story. This is one of the best, if not the best, of my many audible experiences. Please only get the unabridged version: I wouldn't miss a drop of this story.

A fascinating view into the world of what has to be the most extreme of extreme sports, deep wreck diving. Kurson conveys a treasure chest of historical and technical information, all wrapped in a gripping high-tension narrative. What is most fantastic is the fact that it?s true-every word.
The story invites comparison to works such as ?The Perfect Storm? and ?Touching the Void?; but it transcends those works and others of the genre by allowing the story to stand on its own. Knudson conveys what drives these men through the sheer power of description and story. He doesn?t interject himself or attempt to process the information for us. His meticulous research and winning prose style render that unnecessary.
Listeners will be treated to an education in wreck diving as well as a slice of history. The fear and excitement is palpable in every dive. This is a one of a kind story.

This is probably the best book I've ever listened to on audible, the narration is fantastic and the book is totally gripping, I couldn't put it down. The book is much more that the summary says. The interview with the divers and the author at the end of the book is a fantastic addition.

This title provides a fascinating insight into the world of deep wreck diving. It describes the dangers they encountered particularly in the early years when they breathed oxygen and narcosis was a constant and dangerous presence on their dives. Also the dedication of the divers as they risked their lives time and time again to find another piece of the puzzle.
I've never dived and never really considered just how dangerous diving can be but this story makes you appreciate the bravery, sometimes the foolhardiness but always the dedication to their sport of the early pioneers of deep wreck diving.
