9780060932596: The Last Dive: A Father and Son's Fatal Descent into the Ocean's Depths

Chris and Chrissy Rouse, an experienced father-and-son scuba diving team, hoped to achieve widespread recognition for their outstanding but controversial diving skills. Obsessed and ambitious, they sought to solve the secrets of a mysterious, undocumented World War II German U-boat that lay under 230 feet of water, only a half-day's mission from New York Harbor. In doing so, they paid the ultimate price in their quest for fame.

Bernie Chowdhury, himself an expert diver and a close friend of the Rouses', explores the thrill-seeking world of deep-sea diving, including its legendary figures, most celebrated triumphs, and gruesome tragedies. By examining the diver's psychology through the complex father-and-son dynamic, Chowdhury illuminates the extreme sport diver's push toward—and sometimes beyond—the limits of human endurance.

About the Author :

Bernie Chowdhury is the founder and co-publisher of The Inteinational Technical Diving Magazine. A world-class diver, Explorers Club Fellow, and a recognized expert on extreme sport diving, he also makes documentary films and is a frequent lecturer.

From AudioFile :

Chowdhury was friends with the father and son who die here. He's felt the fascination of the deep wrecks. He knows the "Martini Law," which states that for every 50 feet down it's as if the diver has had one martini on an empty stomach. The author tells us how he nearly perished while exploring the wreck of the Andrea Doria. When he writes about how Chrissy Rouse gets trapped in the mystery U-Boat at 230 feet, we hear the boy thumping the hull. We feel a father's terrible panic. Kevin Conway's voice is a rich, full-throated instrument. The abridgment is superb. Don't operate heavy machinery while listening to this book. B.H.C.
