I have been an instructor for 20 years and decided a while ago that I would probably be partner-less in an emergency. I researched solo diving and found this book to be the most comprehensive. I use it as an additional resource as a PADI Self-Reliant Diver Instructor and lend it to my students for outside reading (in additional to the course materials). You couldn't ask for more of an endorsement than that.
Of course it's meant only as a guide for previously and properly trained divers, but, it's a quick, easy read with good food for thought before setting off solo.
The book was written much more in the "idea" of diving solo. It was a book on the philosophy of self reliance (which is fine, but not what I thought it would be) underwater. The ideas presented in this book are good whether diving with a group or diving alone.
