SCUBA FUNDAMENTAL: Come avvicinarsi alla subacquea nel modo giusto (ITALIAN VERSION)
If you've never tried diving but are thinking about getting started, then “Scuba Fundamental - How to Approach Scuba Diving the Right Way” is the book for you. It will accompany you from the initial steps up to your first twenty dives.
This isn't your classic diving manual. It is very different. Scuba Fundamental's goal is not to teach you to dive. An instructor will do that. But this text will make the process easier. It will help you make the right choices and avoid the most common mistakes that often happen to those who begin to approach this sport. It will also put you on the right path to becoming a competent and capable diver.
Scuba Fundamental will advise you on how to prepare for a course and what a good beginner's course should include. It will help you in choosing a good instructor, a good operator to dive with once you have finished the lessons and what kind of dives you should do in the beginning.
You will learn how diving can change your life and get valuable advice on how to behave in this sport. By reading the book, but especially the chapter "It Happened to Me" you will have fun, learn and be encouraged through the anecdotes of people who are now expert divers but who, like you, were once beginners.
There is also an entire section dedicated to safety, much of which covers vital aspects of diving that standard manuals often overlook or do not emphasize enough.
The message of the book is: start diving right and you'll be relaxed and ready to take on your next adventures. You'll have more fun, make fewer mistakes, and be sure you're well informed, you've made the best choices and spent your money wisely.
Scuba Fundamental is an essential, unique and reliable guide: a text that you can completely trust and that you can follow during this formative phase of your diving career.
