"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

THE TECHNICAL DIVING HANDBOOK ISBN 1-883056-05-5 color softcover with lay-flat binding, large format 8 1/2 x 11 192 pages, 125 color photos, 12 tables, 12 equations, fully indexed. The Ultimate Wreck-Diving Guide was the seminal book on technical diving: the primogenitor of its kind. It was written at a time when nitrox, accelerated decompression, helium mixes, rebreathers, and other emerging techniques and technologies were yet in their infancy. The publication of the original volume propelled deep diving into far deeper realms of the dark abyss. Evolution became revolution. Almost overnight the concepts of “high tech” and “extended range” diving entered the forefront of human consciousness. The rite of passage is over. Technical diving has come of age. Underwater explorers can now share the benefits of space-age spin-off hardware and developing decompression methodologies. The Technical Diving Handbook is a practical guide for extended range divers: a soup to nuts volume that discusses in detail every facet of this exciting and challenging underwater activity. The current edition incorporates recent innovations that were unobtainable until only a few years ago, and in some cases were nonexistent when its predecessor first saw print. Acquaint yourself now with such new and exciting devices as the programmable nitrox wrist decompression computer, the personal computer interface, the hoseless pressure gauge, the heads-up display, the full-face mask which permits regulator switching, decompression software for laptops, the submersible electric heating pad, and more. Also included in this handbook are tips for blending nitrox, heliair, heliox, and trimix; instructions on how to build in-water oxygen decompression stations; the procedures and the chemicals needed to clean tanks, valves, and regulators for oxygen service; and a complete chapter on how to plan and execute expedition style mixed-gas diving operations.

I purchased this book to learn and understand the issues with technical diving, and to keep the book as reference. And now, after reading it twice, I am very happy I did. I uncovered layers of information, upon my second reading. I will most likely read this book again. Again, the book is slightly outdated, such that in today marketplace, you can find new dive computers, and new technology and software on CNS, dive time, and DECO. The author has written this book in excellent form. I wonder if he has a newer version?
