"Going Deep is a detailed and thoroughly absorbing history of early submarine development. Goldstone reveals the rivalry between two visionaries, John Holland and Simon Lake, and the surrounding intrigue in the competition to build submarines for the United States Navy. A Fascinating read." -Paul Varnadore, former United States submarine commanding officer.
"A readable, compelling, and intriguing account of the development of the United States' submarine industry at the turn of the 20th century." -Joel I. Holwitt, Execute Against Japan: The U. S. Decision to Conduct Unrestricted Submarine Warfare.
"Lawrence Goldstone describes how entrepreneurs with new ideas struggled for recognition and acceptance among purblind government bureaucrats, ambitious politicians, and the conservative institution of the Navy. This is a well-crafted, highly-readable account of the complexities, compromises, and nuanced relationships between the individuals, ideas, and institutions necessary for innovators to succeed." -Justin L. C. Eldridge, Naval historian.
"We think of our time as an unrivaled era of innovation, but the Gilded Age at the turn of the 20th century was its equal. Lawrence Goldstone writes brilliantly of this period, and the cast of visionaries, tycoons, politicians, and scoundrels that made it vibrate. Going Deep tells the story of an incredible invention and the humble genius who battled for decades to convince a skeptical world--and the Navy's Old Guard--of the value of his creation. An insightful, important, and enthralling book." -Mark Obenhaus, The Age of Aerospace.
"Goldstone not only narrates the development of the first submarines in exacting detail, but he also sheds light on the murky processes of 19th and 20th century naval acquisitions. Going Deep is a good read and a welcome addition to the literature on a weapons system that fundamentally changed naval warfare." -James C. Rentfrow, Home Squadron: The US Navy on the North Atlantic Station.

This book is outstanding scholarship. A well-researched reference book done by a talented writer - that reads like a novel.
I could not put it down. The best book that was ever been written on the early submarine.
Any professional submariner must have this book.
I am sure that Admiral Rickover, God Bless Him, would find it excellent as well.
Books like these are ever so enlightening, and they really supplement with depth any grade-school pedantry about history.
