Book Review

‘Technical Diving in depth’

Bruce R. Wienke

Best Publishing Company

P.O. Box 30100

Flagstaff, Arizona 86003-0100, USA


Copyright, 2001

This nifty little book (488 pages) presents more information than many encyclopedias of diving. It is ‘nifty’ in the sense that each chapter is accompanied by corroborating physical equations, questions for comprehension and ‘to the point references’; ‘little’ in the sense that it doesn’t fatigue the hands and arms to hold and read (as happens with the latest NOAA textbook); and it presents in one small package diving background information available no place else.

It starts off, as a book on technical diving should, with discussions of gas kinetics, critical tensions and phase volumes, altitude situations and then gets into decompression and mixed gases. What follows are extremely interesting discussions of basic fresh and salt water physics, seed and bubble responses and hyperbaric chambers, tables and meters and it is here that he gets into the reduced gradient bubble model validation and testing. This is the RGBM that is now being used in many dive computers.

As if this is not enough, we are treated to sections on gravity, solar radiation and earth sciences. It is not until we get into section 11 that we see any discussions of diving medicine – but after all, that’s not what the book is about.

The last three sections discuss biosystems of  bubble nucleation, offer computing algorithms and an interesting but puzzling section on wind and water motion as they affect the earth.

I highly recommend this gem of a book. It will be startling to you (as it was to me) to find out how little you know about the physical world that affects divers.
