Underwater Potholer by Duncan Price is a picaresque survey of the triumphs and occasional trials of a well travelled and experienced British cave diver. By no means a technical manual, but it offers an interesting view of one type of exploratory psychology, which might be viewed as archetypally British. Dry humour and understatement abound, and those who enjoy reading between the lines will reap some extra rewards.
For those interested in the exploration of Agen Allwed, Daren Cilau, and Elm Hole, this is a genuinely useful introduction to some parts of the bigger story. For those who like a series of ripping yarns, it has a lot to offer. If you are a young cave diver, it is not one to give as a present to your loved ones...
Personally I enjoyed it very much, as it covers an era of exploration that I remember, although diving in different areas at the time. Not at all influenced by a fleeting mention (oh, the siren song of fame!)
