Wise Divers is back with a new e-book, this time with a scuba chronicle by dive historian Eric Hanauer appropriately called Diving Through The Decades. The volume is the fifth e-book in the series, which includes 101 Tips for Underwater Photographers, Amazing Animals You Can See Underwater (Vols. 1&2), and 101 Tips for Recreational Scuba Divers.
A ‘“decade by decade journey through the evolution of diving,” the e-book looks at the inventions, events and key figures that transformed scuba from a niche activity pioneered by a few to the immensely popular pastime that it is for millions around the world today. NOGI winner Hanauer is a household name with a long and illustrious career as a writer—and shooter—and we’re betting there’s plenty of fascinating stuff about underwater photography and filmmaking in the book as well. In addition to photos and personal stories, Hanauer includes interviews with the dive industry’s movers and shakers, conducted over some four decades.
Diving Through The Decades is available now
This is the fifth book in the Wise Divers eBook series
Announcing a new eBook that chronicles the progression of scuba diving from its humble beginnings to an international sport enjoyed by millions. Written by highly respected diving historian Eric Hanauer, Diving Through The Decades takes readers on an up-close and personal, decade by decade journey through the evolution of diving while highlighting inventions, events, and noted diving pioneers. The comprehensive text includes personal stories, historical photographs, and insightful interviews Hanauer conducted with numerous diving pioneers who laid the foundation of diving as we know it today. The interviews (conducted over a period of 40 years) transform the book from a gathering of historical facts into an intimate experience for diving enthusiasts.
Hanauer’s first magazine article appeared in Skin Diver in 1977. That launched a parallel career as a writer and photographer that took Hanauer around the world in the heyday of the magazine industry. Eventually, he expanded into other publications, including Dive Training, Fathoms, Scubapro Diving and Snorkeling, Scuba Times, and Sport Diver, among others. His byline has appeared in more than 1,000 articles, many reprinted internationally. The recipient of the prestigious NOGI (New Orleans Grand Isle) Award in Sports/Education in 2019 presented by the Underwater Academy of Arts and Sciences, Hanauer has written four additional books: The Egyptian Red Sea, Diving Pioneers, Diving Micronesia, and Immersion, a corporate history of Aqua Lung.
