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.

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.

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.
