Greek cave diving instructor and adventure filmmaker Stratis Kas has released his much-anticipated book “Close Calls,” which is a collection of 68 gripping, personal close call stories by high profile technical divers, like Jill Heinerth, Edd Sorrenson, Richie Kohler, and Becky Kagan Schott, about diving incidents that nearly cost them their lives. Incidents include entanglement, getting lost in caves, running out of gas, equipment failures, hypoxia, hypercapnia, caustic cocktails and more. A list of the books international roster of contributors is shown below.
“My intent was simple,” Kas Explained. “If high profile divers and dive industry leaders were willing to share their own mistakes and lapses of judgement, many of which nearly cost them everything, it would help rank-and-file divers realize that they are fallible and subject to similar errors, and hopefully make them safer divers.” Italian explorer Edoardo Pavia, and journalist and editor Michael Menduno, who both contributed stories, assisted Kas with the project.
Close Calls is arguably a must-read book for every diver that serious about diving safety! You won’t want to put it down.
