This book is well written with wonderful color photos. Nicely divided into chapters and just enough info w/o being overwhelming. I would also recommend other Sterling Bios. My middle school daughter will be using it for a science bio this year.
I purchased this book for my daughter as she is starting diving with the Navy Sea Cadets. She is enjoying the read and I am thrilled she is learning so much about the origin of modern SCUBA. I definitely recommend Jacques biography to anyone interested in diving.
