Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0978107810, Paperback)The Diving Almanac & Yearbook is the only almanac, yearbook, book of records, and who's who of the international diving community.
DAY informs readers on every aspect of diving, including recreational, commercial, scientific and military activities. Updated and revised every year, DAY provides the most up-to-date information on diving demographics, 350 diving records and aquatic superlatives, 500 personalities, history, training, medicine, federations and associations per country, equipment, marine biology, oceanography, world news, magazines, new books and DVDs, dive destinations for over 150 countries and territories, and much more.
It is also a yearbook that chronicles diving events over the past year in a monthly format. Information and contact sources from around the world contribute to the year in review to keep DAY readers well aware of happenings in the diving world.
Authoritative, wide-ranging and easy to use, D.A.Y. is the world's most complete reference on diving. Over 600 pages of facts, figures, charts and illustrations, including 72 pages in full color, provide readers with a unique international view of diving activities, the diving community, and underwater sciences. No other single volume offers such a wealth of information on as many diving-related subjects.
The 2008 edition includes 150 new personalities (Total 500), 100 new records (Total 350), and several new features, including the DAY Blue Pages: dive information by country followed by a dive directory of dive resorts, liveaboards, charters and dive centres from around the world. The Diving Chronicle (The Year in Review) is 100 pages long and now makes up nearly 20% of the book. There is also a new colour section on underwater artists featuring such renowned painters as Pascal Lecocq (France), Randall Scott (USA) and Carlos Hiller (Costa Rica). All of the original contributors from the 2007 edition - including DAN (Divers Alert Network) - are back and several high-profile players of the diving industry such as the Historical Diving Society and SDI / TDI International, have made significant contributions to DAY 2008. New contributors and new sections have added 150 pages to the 2008 edition. If the 2007 reviews are any indication, the Diving Almanac & Yearbook 2008 promises to be a must-have book for every diver.
