Book review: Setting the Hook, by Peter M. Hunt
This independent but immaculately executed 276-page book tells the tale of a diver's relationship with the Italian cruise liner Andrea Doria that sank in 1956 and subsequently became the ultimate scuba adventure, the "Mount Everest of diving." The book fully deliveres on the diving, adventure and technical fronts, but it is the human angle of the author's very personal journey that elevates this book above a mere description of events.
