Ein Besuch der Apnoe-Weltmeisterschaft wird für James Nestor zum Beginn eines persönlichen Abenteuers: Fasziniert von der Kompromisslosigkeit dieses Sports, erlernt er selbst das Freitauchen. Und fortan zieht es ihn immer tiefer in die verborgene Welt der Ozeane hinab: Er besucht eine Forschungsstation 20 Meter unter der Meeresoberfläche, trifft renommierten Meeresbiologen bei ihrer Arbeit, schwimmt mit Walen und geht im U-Boot auf Tauchstation. Dabei entdeckt er einen unfassbar reichen Lebensraum, mit telepathischen Korallen, leuchtenden Fischen und rätselhaften Riesenkraken. Bis er schließlich den tiefsten Punkt der Erde erreicht – die absolute Grenze für Mensch und Technik. Eine grandiose Entdeckungsreise, die zugleich unseren Wurzeln nachspürt.

Freediving is diving without a breathing apparatus. In many languages, freediving is referred to as apnea(breath-holding) or apnea diving. Freediving was still a relatively unknown sport around the turn of the millennium, but as organized freediving has increased, knowledge of the sport has also grown rapidly. At the same time, certain risks associated with the sport have been recognized. However, when performed correctly, freediving is safe and rewarding. Spreading correct information and promoting safe practices among the general public has become an important point of focus for the core group in the freediving community. Unlike scuba diving, freediving is something almost anyone can take up. All that is needed is some basic equipment and a place to dive. Some may feel that freediving is easy and that taking lessons is unnecessary. While leisurely snorkeling is usually quite safe and easy, adding the elements of increased performance and evaluation into the mix will inevitably introduce some risks. Adequate knowledge combined with good skills helps in controlling these risks. This book is intended to be a basic guide to freediving. Even the experienced diver will find new perspectives and good tips in this book, while the beginner will gain a solid understanding of the basics. Our effort has been to present matters in a neutral, intelligible and personal way, and it is our hope that the practice of safe freediving will spread far and wide.

Check Out What Others Are Saying... "This is by far the most well rounded free diving book I've ever read. I practiced for many years and then took some time off. I was realy looking for a refresher course prior to a long overdue abalone dive. I really thought I knew it all from having so many years under my belt; I was wrong. I didn't know how much I still had to learn. I practiced the excercises in the book for about a week before my dive. I was nearly where I left off from my last dive years prior and within a month I plan to be on my A-game. Thanks to the author for providing such a detailed guide, it's opened up a whole new perspective on the sport that I grew up with! " - GrumpysGifts (USA) "This guide is one of the best written and detailed books on diving out there.For my personally holding my breath underwater was as hard as actual swimming so when I saw that there is a full chapter on how to master it, I knew I have to take this book. All the other tutorials and safety measures are well written so I am sure it will save a lot of lives.I recommend this book to anyone passioned about freediving. Five star for me !" - Vlad Buculei (Brno, Czech Republic)

Covering a diving championship in Greece on a hot and sticky assignment for Outside magazine, James Nestor discovered free diving. He had stumbled on one of the most extreme sports in existence: a quest to extend the frontiers of human experience, in which divers descend without breathing equipment, for hundreds of feet below the water, for minutes after they should have died from lack of oxygen. Sometimes they emerge unconscious, or bleeding from the nose and ears, and sometimes they don't come up at all. The free divers were Nestor's way into an exhilarating and dangerous world of deep-sea pioneers, underwater athletes, scientists, spear fishermen, billionaires and ordinary men and women who are poised on the brink of some amazing discoveries about the ocean. Soon he was visiting the scientists who live 60ft underwater (and are permanently high on nitrous dioxide), swimming with the notorious man-eating sharks of Runion and descending thousands of feet in a homemade submarine. And on the way down, he learnt about the amazing amphibious reflexes activated in the human body under deep-water conditions, why dolphins were injected with LSD in an attempt to teach them to talk, and why sharks like AC/DC. The sea covers seventy per cent of Earth's surface, and still contains answers to questions about the world we are only beginning to ask: Deep blends science and adventure to uncover its amazing secrets.

One Breath is a gripping and powerful exploration of the strange and fascinating sport of freediving, and of the tragic, untimely death of America's greatest freediver Competitive freediving-a sport built on diving as deep as possible on a single breath-tests the limits of human ability in the most hostile environment on earth. The unique and eclectic breed of individuals who freedive at the highest level regularly dive hundreds of feet below the ocean's surface, reaching such depths that their organs compress, light disappears, and one mistake could kill them. Even among freedivers, few have ever gone as deep as Nicholas Mevoli. A handsome young American with an unmatched talent for the sport, Nick was among freediving's brightest stars. He was also an extraordinary individual, one who rebelled against the vapid and commoditized society around him by relentlessly questing for something more meaningful and authentic, whatever the risks. So when Nick Mevoli arrived at Vertical Blue in 2013, the world's premier freediving competition, he was widely expected to challenge records and continue his meteoric rise to stardom. Instead, before the end of that fateful competition Nick Mevoli had died, a victim of the sport that had made him a star, and the very future of free diving was called into question. With unparalleled access and masterfully crafted prose, One Breath tells his unforgettable story, and of the sport which shaped and ultimately destroyed him.
