Bob Croft literally rewrote the book on deep breath- hold diving.At the time of his first record attempt, the U.S. Navy diving manual clearly stated that breath-hold diving below 120 feet could prove fatal. Despite this warning, Bob decided to test the limits of human freediving potential.On February 8, 1967, holding a heavy lead weight in his hand, he hurtled beyond a depth of 200 feet, and into history.When the Navy needed volunteers to test new and unproven diving devices such as underwater contact lenses, or submit to demanding physical research on oxygen deprivation, Croft was always eager to volunteer. This qcan doq attitude toward risk sometimes took it's toll, but eventually lead him and his research team to new discoveries on the limits of human performance. This book is the compilation of a lifetime of adventures sought and found by an individual who thoroughly enjoyed living at or beyond the edge. It is a must read for those who enjoy a rapid heartbeat and a can do spirit.Bob Croft literally rewrote the book on deep breath- hold diving.At the time of his first record attempt, the U.S. Navy diving manual clearly stated that breath-hold diving below 120 feet could prove fatal.
