Simon Pridmore is the author of Scuba Confidential - An Insider's Guide to Becoming a Better Diver and Scuba Professional - Insights into Sport Diver Training & Operations. He has just published the third volume in the trilogy entitled Scuba Fundamental - Start Diving the Right Way. Diver Magazine editor Steve Weinmann calls Simon "one of the most thoughtful and readable of divers" while technical diving pioneer Kevin Gurr remarks that "Simon's wealth of knowledge as a diving educator and experienced diver is evident" in his books. Commenting on Scuba Professional, underwater explorer Jill Heinerth says "there is quite simply nothing like this book. It offers an invaluable guide to divers who want to excel in the scuba world. This is the ultimate backstage pass into the business of scuba." And US Sport Diver chief editor David Espinosa wrote that "Scuba Confidential is the closest thing there is to a scuba diving self-help book and a must-read for any diver, new or old."
