The author relates many real life stories throughout all the booklets and tells what she has observed and learned during her diving career. Her conversational way of writing makes it easy to learn from her experiences - and her mistakes. It's like having a down-to-earth friend give pointers, answer questions and offer advice that you can easily relate to - because the author has been in the same position.
