I got a book for christmas which I enjoyed reading:-

Diver Down - Real World Scuba Accidents & How to aviod them. ISBN 0-07-144572-2

A good read for anyone at any level, but explains alot of the diving technical stuff for anybody new.

Thanks for sharing this Rob... Is this book simple to be understood by a total novice?

Yes, the book explains techy stuff as you read each incident. (Easy to understand)

The book covers all types of recreation diving accidents and gives a full account of each dive from the begining to the end. Many are unfortunatly fatal, but it is a very good book to learn the easy way about how to aviod accidents.

I got this for xmas and read it from cover to cover in one sitting. I would recomend this book to any diver of any level, you cannot fail to enjoy reading it and learn alot through others mistakes!

It gave us a shake up when we read it and we might live abit longer as a result.
