5-0 out of 5 stars Recommended Reading for All Diving Professionals
"Investigating Recreational and Commercial Diving Accidents" is an exceptional, straight-forward guidebook that outlines the basics of conducting a diving casualty investigation.As a federal commercial diving casualty investigating officer, I highly recommend this book to anyone who investigates diving accidents and, more importantly, to anyone who owns or operates a commercial or recreational diving business to learn how to prevent diving accidents in the future.Steve Barsky's "Recommendations to Help Avoid Commercial Diving Accidents," if followed, will help prevent the majority of diving related accidents.I recommend this simple, one-page list be placed in every diving operations manual and incorporated into every diving business plan.

5-0 out of 5 stars Another Great Book from Steven Barsky
At last! A chink in the armor of professional dive accident investigation is found. In Steven Barsky's and Dr. Tom Neuman's book - Investigating Recreational and Commercial Diving Accidents - we get something of an inside look at the processes that should occur during the investigation of a diving accident. This exceptionally readable book gives just the right amount of technical information without drowning the reader in the ocean of information that exists.

Skillfully assembled into well defined segments, this book paces its way through many of the pitfalls of investigation.The Case Histories were invaluable. I obtained this book in an effort to not only help to better prepare myself to investigate diving accidents but also to look forward in an attempt to eliminate some of the mistakes that led to fatalities while diving. This book gave many interesting and varied cues through these Case Histories.

As a front-line law enforcement supervisor I wish I could put a book like this in my Deputys' hands at every major event. As a dive team supervisor I know that every diver on my team will take something away from this book, whether it's safety related or investigative skills, there's more than enough to go around.

4-0 out of 5 stars Informative yet easy reading
While the Encyclopedia of Recreational Diving is a very informative book,it is not the "heavy" reading that one might expect from a PADImanual.The terminoligy and concepts covered in this book nicelysuppliment what one learns throughout the recreational diving classes --novice open water dives, advanced techniques, underwater navigation, andrescue techniques.

I recommend this for divers who have gone through openwater and advanced classes (and even Rescue), feeling that they did not getall they could out of the classes and textbook.This book is a must forthose wishing to seek a professional dive rating (divemaster and higher),or pursue technical dive certifications. ...
