All about some of the first scuba experiences of Cousteau and company. Some of the things they did were mind-bogglingly stupid, though. "Let's see how close we can get to an exploding underwater bomb without being blown up!" "Let's see how deep we can go, knowing that we'll get nitrogen narcosis, and not even tie our regulators in our mouths!" (One person died from that, so they stopped.)

Perhaps I would have liked the book more if I had seen some of the footage he had filmed.
