Summary
On a hot and sticky magazine assignment for 'Outside' magazine to cover a diving championship in Greece, James Nestor discovered free diving. He was fascinated by the ease with which the divers descended, without breathing equipment, for hundreds of feet below the water, for minutes after they should have died from lack of oxygen. The free divers were Nestor's way in to the world of deep-sea pioneers, underwater athletes, scientists, spear fishermen, billionaires and ordinary men and women who are poised on the brink of some amazing discoveries about the ocean. 'Deep' blends science and adventure to uncover its amazing secrets
