Description
What price are you willing to pay for adventure and knowledge? Spurred on by a fatal combination of obsession and ambition, Chris and Chrisy Rouse, an experienced father-son scuba diving team, hoped to achieve widespread recognition for their outstanding and controversial diving skills by solving the secrets of a mysterious, undocumented, World War II German U-boat that lay only a half day's mission from New York Harbor. Chris and Chrisy Rouse found the ultimate cost of chasing their personal challenge: death from what divers dread the most -- decompression sickness, or "the bends". In this gripping recounting of the Rouses' tragedy, author Bernie Chowdhury, himself an expert diver and a close friend of the Rouses', explores the thrill-seeking, high-risk world of deep sea diving, and its legendary figures, most celebrated triumphs, and notorious tragedies. By examining the diver's psychology through the complex dynamic between father and son, Chowdhury offers a modern morality tale that illuminates the explorer's willingness to risk it all for the pure, raw adrenaline rush of the unknown and the extreme, and the desire to expand our knowledge and the limits of human endurance.
