    Sidemount: The Top Five Books ?

    I am looking into getting a training in sidemount diving next year.

    What would be the top five books on the topic that would currently be recommended ?

    I'm curious as well. I've considered a few.

    - PSAI SIDEMOUNT DIVING FOR THE OVERHEAD ENVIRONMENT MANUAL $25
    They have an open water one as well, presumably it is just a lighter version.

    Some mention:
    Sidemount Diving: An Almost Comprehensive Guide, $40. by Rob Neto

    For me, I've got 25 sidemount dives now, and read most/all of the sidemount sub forum. Some suggest that may cover much in the books, But the books would be a more compact way to learn.

    Robs book is good but if you only get one book I recommend Sidemount Guide by Alexander Hartmann.
