The Frontier Below

The Past, Present and Future of Our Quest to Go Deeper Underwater

Jeff Maynard

Humans only reached the deepest ocean floor in the same decade they set foot on the Moon. From the earliest divers, holding their breath for as long as possible and using rocks to counter their buoyancy, to the latest submersibles, this book chronicles their quest. It explains diving suits and bathyspheres, profiles pioneers such as Jacques Cousteau, outlines the dangers of the bends, and reveals the opportunities that await below 4,000 metres.
