Requiem for a Diver
Jackie Warner and Fred Park

This book is aimed at the international oil industry, divers and provides an insight for the layman about the business.It is the story of  working with ‘paper pushing bureaucrats’, American tool pushers in stetsons, 54 deaths, many which will never be explained and a story of change from the ‘wild west’ early days of offshore diving to today. It covers the problems and dangers that all offshore workers have to face to which the divers have to add their own particular hazards and it introduces touches of ‘diver humour’.
