Deep Into Deco is a comprehensive and well-written reference text that covers the various topics of decompression theory. What makes this book truly stunning is that it is not only straightforward, easy-to-read and understand and free from technical jargon, but it also portrays the latest developments and controversial issues in technical diving. From the early history of experimental trial and error to the latest innovations and changes in the decompression arena, Deep Into Deco brings the science into sharp focus. Throughout the book are demonstrations of how deco schedules are calculated in commercial software packages, without elaborating on mathematical equations or source code. Also, a grab-bag of additional points of interest that contribute to our current understanding of decompression theory is explored in detail. Deep Into Deco includes interviews with accomplished divers, industry professionals, researchers and software developers. The writing style is a mix of strict no nonsense reporting and interesting storytelling. This book is a must read for any diver looking at understanding decompression theory, how it evolved, what it accomplished and where the latest research is heading.

Editorial Reviews

"Asser's book is the best general overview of decompression modeling I have seen. The information it contains is relevant to divers of all levels, from the occasional sports diver who wants to know more about how the dive computer works to the technical diver planning extended decompression dives. It certainly is a welcome addition to my dive library!"   Jeffrey Bozanic, PhD, author of Mastering Rebreathers"Deep into Deco is a stimulating read which covers almost every facet of diving from breathing to technical decompression. I recommend this book for all divers from novice to technical expert because Asser Salama makes even the most difficult topics seem easy and understandable. No diving collection is complete without this super overview book."    Commander Joseph Dituri, US Navy Saturation Diving Officer (ret) and Vice President of IANTD
