Dear friends,

I do not like PR and try not to advertise the results of my work. However, it is possible that the 7-volume publication on the history of diving will serve as some justification for me. I began to collect materials on diving history since 1979, and after defending my doctoral dissertation in physiology in 1998, I systematized them, supplemented and published them. The first volume, covering the time period from the Epic of Gilgamesh to the end of the 18th century, was published in 2011, the sixth - in 2016, and the final 7th, where I told about the history of the creation of the six-volume book and a little about myself - in 2023. I hope that this series of books will be of help to those who will be engaged in the study of human exploration of the depths of the World Ocean will be curious for ordinary readers, and I firmly promise that I will not write the next volume.
Sincerely yours,
Alexander Sledkov May 31.2023
