    Author Information By Alf Brubakk, Professor of Environmental Physiology, Medical Faculty, Department of Physiology & Biomedical Engineering, Norwegian University of Sciences and Technology, Trondheim, The Netherlands; and Tom Neuman, Professor of Clinical Medicine, Adjunct Professor of Surgery, University of California, San Diego School of Medicine, La Jolla, CA; Director, Hyperbaric Medical Center, CA
    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."
