    Dear Scubaboard Community,

    I'd like to let you know that my latest popular science book with relevance to diving is available as of today!

    The popular science book “Gehirn Extrem” describes extreme brain states, both from a subjective as well as from a scientific/neurobiological point of view. The reader learns about topics such as the mechanisms of breath-holding during apnea diving, inert gas narcosis during deep scuba dives, and hallucinations when climbing the extreme heights of the Himalayan mountains. Written with scientific substance and a sense of humor, “Gehirn Extrem” entertains and educates.

    There is one small catch: It's in German! If it finds a wide readership, we will have an English translation.

    The book is available from the publisher and via the German branch of Amazon.
