Publisher's Summary

Scuba Confidential is a unique audiobook packed full of valuable tips and expert advice, giving you unprecedented access to the secrets of dive professionals and technical divers. With Scuba Confidential, you will learn how to master skills and techniques that will make you a more confident, capable, and safe diver. It offers an informed, balanced view on some of scuba diving's most contentious issues like going solo, deep diving, and rebreathers and includes a comprehensive analysis of how diving accidents happen and how to make sure you do not become a statistic.
Scuba Confidential also gives you valuable insights on a vast range of topics such as what it is like to do a cave diving course, how to make sure you buy the right equipment, what to consider when choosing an instructor, things even the pros get wrong, and where to find the best diving in the world. This is candid, no-nonsense practical advice from a professional who has been involved over the last three decades with virtually every aspect of the sport. Scuba Confidential answers a whole host of questions. For example, have you ever wondered... How the professionals look so comfortable in the water? What it is like to dive under ice and inside shipwrecks? Which training courses are worthwhile and which might just be a waste of time? If you would make a good technical diver? If you should be considering a rebreather? How you can reduce your air consumption? Whether you might actually be safer without a buddy sometimes? Or: How muck diving can possibly be any fun? Scuba Confidential has the answers to all these and many more.

A must read for all divers

I'm a new diver and found this book immensely helpful in educating me and filling in the gaps of hard-to-find information. It clarified topics and cut through myths and brought theoretical knowledge into the real world. A must read for anyone that wants to be a safer and better diver.

Pass Marks

If you could sum up Scuba Confidential in three words, what would they be?

Informative, detailed, flat

How could the performance have been better?

Simon should have narrated himself. Wasn't as enjoyable as the other books.

Excellent for all divers - must listen

A great synopsis of basics, with many words of wisdom for the more experienced. Tips on how to organise your kit, gases and gleanings from tec/ cave diving relevant to recreational divers much appreciated. I now want to go to Lombok.
