The art of cave diving has been considered as a very dangerous past time, what with its participant’s propensity to diving inside underground galleries totally filled with water. In “Cave Diving” (published by Xlibris UK) the author Pierre Boudinet creates an eye-opening read on this remarkable art form.

"Cave Diving"shows readers how, through all the ups and downs of life, the author has always been pushed toward cave diving. From childhood to the present time, he explains what has shaped and sharpened him for this activity, which is regarded as very hazardous and engaged. He explains how this nonpaid activity is linked with the other parts of his life. 

The emphasis is put not only on exploration, which is a very central element of caving and cave diving but also on ethical, social, technical and scientific considerations. Doing things is presented as more important than having or being.
