Once again no cover. This book is another that I first bought when I was fifteen, and learning to dive under the West Pier at Brighton. First published in 1954 this book was translated from the French and is full of Diole’s trademark philosophy and romanticism.It’s about diving in its infancy with all the hope that it could bring.But its also about humanity, cooperation, learning to live in harmony. It is from a time when being at one with nature was seen as the highest of goals, and diving as almost spiritual. Don’t let all that stop you. Its a book well worth reading. Diole was revered in France but almost unknown over here. Recomended, but you will have to really search for it.
