I was excited to see someone pinned The Scuba Snobs' Guide to Diving Etiquette on Pinterest. At least Debbie said so. I'm not familiar with Pinterest. Anyway both Bopok 1 and 2 remain available in paper or e-book on most on line outlets.

Recent review from Amazon:

Still funny, and just the right amount of arrogance! By kevindsingleton on November 16, 2015
More of the same from the Scuba Snobs. Interesting and funny stories emphasizing some of the worst behaviors of scuba divers around the world, and how to avoid becoming one of "those" people in the group, whether in, on, under, or even nowhere near the water.

Great review of diving's unwritten rules, well written and funny. It should be required reading for every diver, both young and old!

New and Seasoned Divers will appreciate this, even if you already are a Scuba Snob, it's good for a laugh!

I have eyed these books for ages and finally broke down and bought them yesterday.

In all fairness, I have not read all of DivemasterDennis' responses on the books, but I was a bit disappointed that Chapter 2 in the first book suggests that only ocean dives count to qualifying as a scuba snob. I recognize all of the dayboat divers discussed in Chapter 3 from fresh water Great Lakes charters. Can us fresh water divers be snobs too?

Many thanks for writing these. Wish I had bought them years ago!

I loved the first book & definitely need to get a copy of the 2nd book soon. (Side note: I'm sorry to hear of your cancer fight. Wishing you all the best.)
Thanks for you nice thoughts. The fight goes on, into my 4th year. I'm a darling of the research community, and am beating the odds so far. Thanks for your support.
DivemasterDennis.

Sorry for the late response. When we are wrong, we are wrong. Great Lakes dives certainly qualify. The jury is still oput on the quarry and pond dives. Of course, pool dives will never qualify.
