Chris and Chrissy Rouse, an experienced father-and-son scuba diving team, hoped to achieve widespread recognition for their outstanding but controversial diving skills. Obsessed and ambitious, they sought to solve the secrets of a mysterious, undocumented World War II German U-boat that lay under 230 feet of water, only a half-day's mission from New York Harbor. In doing so, they paid the ultimate price in their quest for fame.

Bernie Chowdhury, himself an expert diver and a close friend of the Rouses', explores the thrill-seeking world of deep-sea diving, including its legendary figures, most celebrated triumphs, and gruesome tragedies. By examining the diver's psychology through the complex father-and-son dynamic, Chowdhury illuminates the extreme sport diver's push toward—and sometimes beyond—the limits of human endurance.

    This story had a lot of potential, but the author took so many tangents throughout the book that I often forgot I was reading a story about the Rouse's. He tried to fit too much "history of diving" into the book that it just got boring. The parts that actually are about the Rouse's are good but they're sandwiched in between irrelevant information ,and back stories about people who don't really contribute to the story. Lackluster at best.

    A poorly writen book. Instead an in depth book about the the father and son dive team, it is more about the author building himself up and his own exploits.
