    or the NOAA dive manual. Try an internet search for Best Publishing. They have several books about diving.

    I was reading it just the other week before diving for the first time in a long time. There is a lot in there about diving history, which, if not "useful" is fun information. There is a lot about diving phisiology, though, which is very good. Very large section compared to other stuff I've read. I recommend it for that reason.

    SCUBA Diving by Dennis K. Graver is an excellent reference/text for the beginner. Other than Diving For Fun by Joe Strykowski, which is hopelessly outdated and out of print, SCUBA Diving is the best text I've seen.
