Beneath the Surface: Stories of Scuba Diving by Stanley Yokell is a collection of short stories about topics related to scuba diving and scuba divers. Many of the author's observations have been woven into these stories, making the experiences authentic.
Apart from being a collection of short stories, the book introduces you to a world of scuba divers and underwater experiences. You get a lot of information about scuba diving and the techniques related to it. The way the theme has been incorporated into the stories makes it easily understandable to readers and it is also more interesting than simply reading a book on scuba diving. The backdrop of each story is very nice and some of them are set in exotic locales like the Bahamas.
The book obviously has a sea theme since it is about scuba diving. The ocean and the diving details are very informative. The book also exposes us to the mysteries and secrets lurking underwater. One of the chapters takes you to Egypt and the Red Sea. The author has tried to cover many seas and oceans in his stories. There are also stories written on football, tennis, and other sports so it was nice to read on something that is not commonly written about.
This book should be recommended reading for all scuba divers and swimmers and also to those who are fascinated by the ocean. They might be able to relate to many of the experiences in these stories.
