Scuba Confidential is a unique book packed full of valuable tips and expert advice, giving you unprecedented access to the secrets of dive professionals and technical divers.

With Scuba Confidential, you will learn how to master skills and techniques that will make you a more confident, capable and safe diver. It offers an informed, balanced view on some of scuba diving's most contentious issues like going solo, deep diving and rebreathers and includes a comprehensive analysis of how diving accidents happen and how to make sure you do not become a statistic.

Scuba Confidential also gives you valuable insights on a vast range of topics such as what it's like to do a cave diving course, how to make sure you buy the right equipment, what to consider when choosing an instructor, things even the pros get wrong and where to find the best diving in the world.

This is candid, no-nonsense practical advice from a professional who has been involved over the last three decades with virtually every aspect of the sport.

Scuba Confidential answers a whole host of questions. For example, have you ever wondered

  • How the professionals look so comfortable in the water?
  • What it is like to dive under ice and inside shipwrecks?
  • Which training courses are worthwhile and which might just be a waste of time?
  • If you would make a good technical diver?
  • If you should be considering a rebreather?
  • How you can reduce your air consumption?
  • Whether you might actually be safer without a buddy sometimes? Or
  • How muck diving can possibly be any fun?
  • Scuba Confidential has the answers to all these and many more.

    About the Author

    Simon Pridmore is the author of Scuba Confidential - An Insider's Guide to Becoming a Better Diver and Scuba Professional - Insights into Sport Diver Training & Operations. He has just published the third volume in the trilogy entitled Scuba Fundamental - Start Diving the Right Way. Diver Magazine editor Steve Weinmann calls Simon "one of the most thoughtful and readable of divers" while technical diving pioneer Kevin Gurr remarks that "Simon's wealth of knowledge as a diving educator and experienced diver is evident" in his books. Commenting on Scuba Professional, underwater explorer Jill Heinerth says "there is quite simply nothing like this book. It offers an invaluable guide to divers who want to excel in the scuba world. This is the ultimate backstage pass into the business of scuba." 
And US Sport Diver chief editor David Espinosa wrote that "Scuba Confidential is the closest thing there is to a scuba diving self-help book and a must-read for any diver, new or old."
