The book by Klaus Stiefel is an interesting and unique mix of biological, neuro-scientific, ecological and (pop)-cultural information all centered around diving some of the most beautiful spots around the globe. I highly enjoyed reading through the diverse chapters containing such "fun"-facts like animals named "Hitler", how the "Grateful Dead" loved diving, why we are more harmful to sharks then the other way round and lots of material on marine ecology and the neuro-science of fish. And did I mention a proof why god does *not* exist involving the asses of sea cucumbers?
Overall I think this is a good book for everyone interested in diving providing a very non-standard way of approaching the subject. It is much more diverse than your "normal" introduction to diving and instead of giving you technical detail or "how-to-do"'s it tries to get you hooked on diving itself. I would recommend reading the book while you are next to a beach and in the pauses have a look at the fish.
PS: Although it must be admitted that the "sex"-part is about animals (e.g. octopus) rather than humans ;-)
