    Comments about Aqua Quest Solo Diving, The Art of Underwater Self-Sufficiency, By Robert Von Maier:

    This is a great read for any diver but I do wish ther was more here. Any diver that dives very long will be doing a solo dive even if it's just because they lost their buddy. The book is more about being a self sufficent diver than anything else. Do yourself and your buddy a favor and read this book.
