Published Reviews

    "Physically the book is a treat. Handsome and well presented, the layout is straight-forward and elegant, with high-quality line drawings and tables. The figures are particularly well rendered, with clarity aided by the avoidance of color...In summary, Bennett & Elliott's Physiology and Medicine of Diving remains a benchmark of texts in the field I thoroughly recommend it as an essential reference for any diving medicine facility and suggest that many individual diving physicians and scientists will wish to secure a personal copy."
