The contents include both the physics and physiology of diving medicine along with interspersed clinical vignettes of actual cases that are used to illustrate particular points. The book itself is well diagrammed and has extremely good photos (several in colour), which only enhance the clinical and theoretical discussions of each topic. I find it hard to think of a subject in diving medicine that this book has not covered very well, and the main topics (such as injuries to the ear) are covered in appropriate depth.
