In his book Mark recounts what it’s like to journey deep into the belly of the ocean, explaining in plain language the hazards involved exploring the twilight depths of the sea where lack of preparation is rewarded with injury and failure rewarded with Death.Mark has spent the last two decades dedicated to finding and diving the deepest ship wrecks and exploring the farthest reaches of the vast and virtually unknown frontier that we all take for granted…The Ocean.Throughout the book Mark takes an often light-hearted look at scuba diving in general and explores the extreme sport of Technical Diving, where rules are constantly being re-written and the unlucky or stupid are lost forever.Mark Ellyatt is an adventurer of the purest sort: he braves the deepest, darkest reaches of the ocean because he loves it there. In Ocean Gladiator he tells his remarkable story with a rare blend of humour and humility. Tim Ecott author of Neutral BuoyancyEllyatt has such a colourful turn of phrase and natural style - his prose flow like a chilled Chardonnay albeit slightly acidic. A very entertaining read, most if not all divers will learn something from this book . Steve Weinman editor DIVER magazine
