"Review" by , "Thank you for your sensational book. What a brilliant idea. There must be an army of underwater enthusiasts out there who will consider it their bible. You have done more to promote underwater research and interest than you can ever imagine, especially among young people."
"Review" by , "This book is a source of inspiration to kindle the imagination of our next generation of underwater explorers."
"Review" by , "This new book introduces you to the excitement and the technology of underwater exploration. While this book was written for inquisitive students in upper elementary or middle schools, high school students and adults alike will find the book fun and interesting. The book not only has complete instructions for building an ROV but contains many other projects such as an underwater glider, diving bell and more."
"Synopsis" by , Unlike fish, whales or frogs, humans are not designed to live in water. Yet we have an amazing ability to survive and function underwater because of our invented technology. This book shows you how to use some of that amazing technology to construct simple, inexpensive underwater projects. The diving bells, habitats, gliders and robotic vehicles are fun to make. But these projects are not just toy models — they are actual working shallow water craft. The physical principles used to design and build them are the same as those required for full-size modern submarines and submersibles.

You don't have to read this book cover-to-cover. Flip through it first and get a feel for what challenges are inside. You can build all of these projects on the kitchen table or in the classroom.

There are 3 parts to this book:

  • Part 1 looks at some of the pioneering work and recent accomplishments in underwater exploration. There is also an explanation of the four basic types of modern submersibles as well as an illustration showing depths reached by various types of divers and subsea craft.
  • Part 2 details four chapters of build-it-yourself submersible projects, each with several variations. Generally, the first model in each chapter is the easiest and the last is the most complex. The most basic ones use supplies you might already have at home. Others require purchasing materials and some skill and access to basic tools. If you have limited construction knowledge, ask someone who is experienced to help out.
  • Part 3 is really a reference section that should answer some of your questions about how and why things work underwater. As well, there are practical tips for designing and building your own underwater projects.
