New Freediving Book - One Breath by Adam Skolnick
If your new year's resolution was to read more (and even if it wasn't!), we highly recommend the new freediving book, One Breath: Freediving, Death, and the Quest to Shatter Human Limits, written by Adam Skolnick. It delves into the world of competitive freediving by following the rise, and ultimately tragic death, of Nick Mevoli. The narrative between Mevoli's life, intertwined with the history of freediving and other competitor stories, gives you a new insight into the beauty and dangers of our captivating sport.
Some more reviews:
"One Breath could stand comfortably alongside classics of extreme-sports journalism such as Jon Krakauer’s Into Thin Air, about the 1996 Mount Everest disaster. Like the best books on ultra-marathons, One Breath captures not just the adrenaline tang of the sport but also the compelling character of its practitioners and the deeper existential experiences they seek." The Sunday Times
“Plunges readers into a liquid kingdom of immense beauty and ever-present danger…a captivating, page-turning book about a world that few will ever visit, but that everyone should know.” —Susan Casey, bestselling author of The Devil's Teeth, The Wave and Voices in the Ocean
