An exciting book that is totally focused on the diver as a person: covering topics such as divers’ sensory perception, feelings, mental functioning, suitability for diving, skill level, panic, anxiety and the influence of hyperbaric pressure. This book is intended to bring together the current amount of knowledge that exists on these topics (the psychology of diving) in an integrated, state-of-the-art review. The authors drew from hundreds of documents on the subject from scientific journals, diving federation periodicals and military research reports from ten countries, published over a 40-year period. Dive supervisors can use this book to better estimate the potential for a diver to succeed or fail in a work task. Researchers and scientists can use this book as an information base for further diving research.
