SCUBA Travel are pleased to release the list of the best selling books and dvds bought by visitors to our site in 2013.
Dive Atlas of the World regains its number one spot, after dropping to number five on the list last year. Diving Southeast Asia is a notable re-entry - not seen in the top ten since its publication date of 2009. There are also several completely new entries. Almost all the books (and the single DVD featured) are either highlights of the best diving around the world, or are sealife guides. The notable exception is North Sea Divers - A Requiem.
Here are the top ten: figures in brackets show the previous year's position. If we've reviewed a book, we link to the review. Otherwise the links go to the cheapest place we've found for you to buy the book.
North Sea Divers - A Requiem
, by Jim Limbrick There have been professional divers in the North Sea since oil exploration began in the 1960s. And since then there have been 58 deaths while diving. The author of North Sea Divers - A Requiem wanted to create a memorial to these divers, whilst at the same time providing a useful text for anyone considering a career as an offshore diver. (--)
