Thanks Chuck, yes buying the book for my non-diving friends who want to
know the lure of SCUBA.

The 3 divers I spoke to, one was a NAUI and other a PADI instructor, claim
the effects of narcosis are noticeable but not incapacitating with
experience in deep dives [ defined as past 100 ft.], and I knew this claim
is supported by the medical literature.  It however, comes with increased risk.
