Descrizione del libro

1 marzo 2010
Cave diving has been called the "most dangerous participatory sport" in the world. It doesn't have to be. With proper training, experience, and guidance, you can be a skilled cave diver, and enjoy this challenging and rewarding activity, for a lifetime. With decades of technical diving experience, including world record cave dives, and paradigm changing underwater exploration, Woman Divers Hall of Fame member Jill Heinerth, has created this full-color contemporary guidebook. Generously illustrated, "The Essentials of Cave Diving" contains practical, 21st century underwater knowledge, including sidemount techniques and the latest rebreather technology. Encompassing all levels of cave diving, from entry-level to expert, this manual is an essential tool; appropriate and relevant to all cave training disciplines.

Descrizione prodotto


A Cave Diver and prolific author, Jill Heinerth is an explorer. For over twenty years, her curiosity and photographic skills have given us a tantalizing peek at a breathtaking underwater world few will ever experience. Best known as a pioneering technical diver, Jill combines a mastery of underwater technology with a formal Fine Arts education to produce artistic documentation of the natural environment above, below and inside our planet. Jill's credits include National Geographic, Discovery, History Channel, Nippon TV, BBC, PBS and many others. Hollywood directors call on her to produce difficult underwater scenes and international magazines look to her to document extreme environments with digital technology. Jill is an inaugural member of the Women Divers Hall of Fame and has been acclaimed as a Living Legend in Sport Diver magazine. Ms. Heinerth is the 2011 winner of the Wyland ICON award, an honor she shares with such notables a Jacques Cousteau, Dr. Sylvia Earle and Robert Ballard. Born in Canada, Jill lives with her husband, Robert, in North Florida, where she starts most days with a refreshing swim in the clear water of her local spring.

5.0 su 5 stelle A welcome new training tool 14 luglio 2010
Di Jim Bowden - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
The Essentials of Cave Diving is a must for the student cave diver and a refreshing tool for those of us who teach the discipline. I am retired from teaching but wish that Jill's book had been available for my students when I was teaching. . It is an excellent tool and damn good fun for us old troglodytes. The generous use of photos and graphics make it both more readable and inspiring. While I do not teach anymore I still explore caves and enjoy keeping up with my colleagues around the world. I see that Jill included some of them in photos. What is important with this book is that it is written by an experienced, very capable cave diver/explorer who lives what she writes about.

5.0 su 5 stelle A very readable cave diving manual 19 dicembre 2011
Di nick_js - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Finally a cave diving manual for the 21st century! Jill has done an outstanding job in presenting all the basics of this discipline in a friendly PADI-style book. The manual is very well illustrated and up to date, unlike most other cave diving books on the marked which originate from the 80s and can easily intimidate newcomers to the sport. Everything that is essential for safe cave diving is well covered in the book. The style is light and welcoming.

The only downside to this book is that it spends too many pages on mixed gas and deco theory, as well as rebreather diving. Most casual cave divers (the intended audience of the book) use open-circuit equipment and don't run into heavy deco schedules. And should they decide to do mixed gas deco or rebreathers, then they would have to take a number of specialized courses which would provide the appropriate knowledge and literature. So, I hope that the second edition of the book cuts back on these sections and focuses more on the core cave diving techniques and procedures.

Overall, I recommend this book as a great informative and entertaining read for cave diving students and veterans who are looking for a lightweight knowledge refresher.

Ms. Heinerth is an incredible author who knows how to work just enough humor in this treatise to make the reading enjoyable and very informing.

5.0 su 5 stelle The Real World 8 settembre 2013
Di Angela Brown - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato:Copertina flessibile
Those who are not cave divers and those who do not know Jill, will be somewhat out of place keeping up with the plethora of information and jargon.
Cave diving is a technical form of diving, as such has its own technical nomenclature. If one is not familiar with the sport, having never done it, I'm sure more questions will come from reading this book.
This book should be a part of every cave divers personal library.

After reading one comment, I felt it necessary to state the obvious to those who know, but maybe not so obviouse to those who may not. No book or video can prepare someone for cave diving. There shouldn't be an expectation one could read this book and go out and cave dive, it doesn't work that way. As with most things, time and exposure to the people, places and the sport are what counts.
As a full cave diver, who knows Jill personally, one cannot be in better hands in this sport. Her book is an excellent tool, not intended to replace actual training and hands on experience.
