Débutant en apnée, j'ai adoré ce livre, lu et relu plusieurs fois. Contient de nombreuses informations générale sur ce sport, sur l'anatomie humaine qu'il est nécessaire de bien connaître pour pratiquer. On apprécie également toutes les séries d'exercices proposées.
Bien évidemment, la pratique de ce sport peut-être dangereuse, et ce livre ne remplace pas un moniteur !

HASH(0x8bd41e70) étoiles sur 5 The Freediving Buddy 17 décembre 2004
Par Andrey Stepantsov - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The book will work instead of a freediving instructor, even if we are afraid to say so. Not only does the manual cover everything that a freediver must know about physiology, physics, techniques and safety, but it also contains a practical training guide given by the one of the best, for those, who want to experience the athletic side of the sport.

I went beyond -40 m. in constant weight, 100 m. in dynamics and 5:30 in static, before I met my first freediving teacher. I was exacting student, but my teacher was the great one, he gave me the knowledge structured and detailed in the very same manner how you'll find in the book.

Analyzing the chapter about training I found that my techniques are very similar to those described in the book, though I spent years looking for some of them! For a beginner I would recommend to read the book instead of inventing things that are already there. This great book helps me to reorder and complete the structure in my mind.

I would recommend the book to all the people who love freediving or want to know what freediving is.

HASH(0x8bd41ec4) étoiles sur 5 Very usefull, it's like a personnal coach! 14 avril 2005
Par David - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I've been practicing Freediving a lot over the last 3 years. This book covers it all, from history to physiology. It is well explained, and almost every aspects of the sport is covered. I especialy felt in love with the yearly training program at the end of the book. It's bee 2 months now and I realy did improve my statics and dynamics. The book was writen by a profesionnal freediver, and a profesionnal sport educator, so you'll learn all you need to practice and improve yourself.
The only reason why I don't give it a 5, it's because it's even too complete... there are sometimes way too many details, so it gets long and heavy to read. Anyhow, the first and perfect freediving bible for anyone.

HASH(0x8bd49318) étoiles sur 5 The Bible for Freediving 1 août 2006
Par Cliff Etzel - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
As a freedive instructor, I feel that this book should be manditory for ALL freedivers who wish to learn from a master of the sport.

This is probably the most complete book on all aspects of freediving, and is manditory reading before taking one of Umberto's Apnea Academy courses.

I have trained with Kirk Krack, Pipin Ferarras and Aharon Solomons and can tell you that each has taught me something, but it was the combination of Aharon's teaching along with Umberto's book that took me to a new level of freediving. Since Aharon is an Apnea Academy Instructor, it was only natural to have this book be my required reading. As far as I am concerned, it is the best source available outside of taking one of Umberto's courses for learning how to freedive correctly, efficiently and effectively.

Do yourself a favor - get this book, forget about the hype - it is an instruction manual - learn from it - you won't regret it.

HASH(0x8bd496e4) étoiles sur 5 For this beginner, worthless 18 février 2005
Par Larry OBrien - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's always difficult for a beginner to review a textbook, because there's always the chance that your reactions are entirely offbase. It is possible that some people, trying to learn to hold their breath longer while underwater will value 360 pages of advice as "Getting Dressed. Start by putting on the trousers: insert the legs, first one then the other," and "We complete the scaling of the existential levels by passing to the colour violet, where we stabilise a contact with our most intimate reality, that which we call the spiritual dimension," while foregoing any significant discussion of strategies for dealing with the sensations of holding your breath.

To me, this book is infuriatingly short of relevant information. Not only do you get advice on how to put on pants, there are sections that seem relevant (the 2.5 pages on the circulatory system, say), that jump between streams of grade-school exposition ("The heart is a hollow muscle that has the capacity to function like a pump; expanding and contracting, it sucks blood that is delivered continuously by the veins and pushes it to the peripheries of the body through the arteries....") and trivia ("...[blood] is propagated by their elastic walls at a velocity of 9 meters per second. However in the arterioles of the periphery the velocity drops to one millimetre per second....") without actually introducing any relevant facts (does blood velocity have something to do with freediving? Maybe. I wouldn't know it after reading this book. And the book is packed with clearly irrelevant information, such as 2 pages on the Beaufort wind scale).

To reconcile my reaction with the 5 star reviews from those who can do statics of 5+ minutes and so forth, I can only say that perhaps they skipped the trivia, don't need practical advice on breath holding, and valued specific advice on, say, finning technique.

The 30 pages of chapter 11 "Training for Apnea" will _possibly_ take less time to read than finding equivalent advice on the Web, but are hardly worth $40. For me, this book was an utter waste of money.

HASH(0x8bd49690) étoiles sur 5 The freediving manual you were waiting for! 1 décembre 2004
Par Jerald Winter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
I just received this manual yesterday. It is the manual I've been looking for. I have hunted (and printed) many web pages to find detailed techniques for freediving. This book will save you the tiring hunt and get you started in freediving. The manual provides a brief history of freediving, a succint review of the physics of freediving, and a concise, pertinent review of anatomy and physiology. The authors spend the rest of the book going into great detail on how to freedive: equipment, relaxation, breathing techinques, equalizing, entrance, finning technique, and safety.

While this book is a good precursor to taking a professionally taught class on freediving, it does not substitute for hands-on training clinics like Umberto's or Performance Freediving. It is an excellent book for a freediving group to use for training. I am recommending this book to all my friends who have expressed interest in freediving.
