Reseña del editor
Rebreather diving is one of the fastest growing segments of the underwater community. But, until now, easy-to-understand advice and guidance for novices has been hard to find. With this book, professional rebreather instructor Jill Heinerth helps divers navigate the complex, and sometimes intimidating world of rebreather diving. Providing clear, candid and straightforward information based on her decades of exploration and teaching experience, Jill leads readers through the history, basics and technical aspects of this remarkable, silent approach to diving. A valuable tool and a good read for beginners and accomplished SCUBA divers, The Basics of Rebreather Diving is generously illustrated with full color photographs, charts and drawings. Jill adds just the right amount of rich personal anecdotes to provide an insider’s viewpoint about the past, present and future of rebreather diving. Anyone considering or currently diving a rebreather, will find in this book a wealth of knowledge and an enjoyable addition to their diving library.
Biografía del autor
More people have walked on the moon, than have been to some of the places that Jill’s exploration has taken her right here on the earth. From the most dangerous technical dives deep inside underwater caves, to searching for never before seen ecosystems inside giant Antarctic Icebergs, to the lawless desert border area between Egypt and Libya while a civil war raged around her, Jill’s curiosity and passion about our watery planet is the driving force in her life. Jill’s accolades include induction into the Explorer’s Club and the inaugural class of the Women Diver’s Hall of Fame; she received the Wyland ICON Award, an honor she shares with several of her underwater heroes including Jacques Cousteau, Robert Ballard and Dr. Sylvia Earle; she was named a “Living Legend” by Sport Diver Magazine; and selected as Scuba Diving Magazine’s “Sea Hero of the Year 2012”. Jill is a 2017 NOGI award winner. In recognition of her lifetime achievement, Jill is being awarded the inaugural Sir Christopher Ondaatje Medal for Exploration. Established by the Royal Canadian Geographical Society, the medal recognizes singular achievements and the pursuit of excellence by an outstanding Canadian explorer. Canada also recently bestowed the Canadian Polar medal, recognizing Jill's body of work in the Canadian North and Antarctica. With her latest project, the “We Are Water Project”, she has produced a documentary film, a live presentation and interactive web resources to help lead an educational effort for everyday behavioral changes that will lead to greater access to and preservation of our endangered fresh water resources. In support of this effort, Jill and husband Robert McClellan rode their bicycles 4,300 miles across Canada, from British Columbia to Newfoundland in 2013, meeting people and through presentations to groups large and small, spread the message of “Water Literacy.” Her website www.IntoThePlanet.com provides links to her exploration and water advocacy efforts.

In my opinion, is a very good book (it would receive a 5-stars review), and I would recommend it, but I do hope to see a new edition with improved pictures and illustrations.

Does it deliver what's promised in the opening pages -- a primer for divers looking to switch to rebreathers? It certainly does, and like so much that Jill has written in past books, I found myself wishing a book as simple and straight-shooting had been available when I started the move to CCR.
It's difficult to write a "textbook" or an "How-To" manual of any sort, and although The Basics of Rebreather Diving does not pretend to be such, reading it would seem to be a great first step for any of you who are thinking about adding a rebreather to your diving toolkit.
From the dangers of lithium batteries through equipment selection to dive procedures and failure management, this is a comprehensive study.
This book probably saved me, as it described an experiment I wanted to do but with her group that went almost very wrong. So thanks for writing also about the 'I shouldn't have done that'.
It is written in such a way that a person does not have to be a rebreather diver but will give you a very good understanding of what it is all about.
I did miss the part about the oxygen cell workings, sensitivity to heat/cold and falling, but like every instructor she would probably say read John Lamb his book for that.
After reading this book it is clear: Use manufacturer Checklist, don't be pressured by a team to do something you don't want or skip some safety item.
And realize that it is still no guarantee that things will go wrong.
