Diving is a sport that appeals to all ages and levels of fitness, and one whose allure has much to do with its social aspect: one always dives with a buddy, with groups of other divers, and for the vast majority, accompanied by a dive instructor or divemaster. Claire Walter, a PADI-certified advanced diver who plans to retake a diving course to reacquaint herself with a beginner's perspective, will address women's issues in everything from getting started to diving basics to advanced diving. As with other titles in the series, she will weave women's voices into the narrative to provide a range of assuring experiences.
