There is a new monumental must have SCUBA Pro book written in German and printed in German;

"50 Jahre SCUBA PRO
Der Atemreglerhersteller
Frank Werthwein"

Paper back, 276 fact filled pages with year by year product description accompanied by photographs.

It begins with the establishment of SCUBA Pro as a division of Healthways in 1962, complete with a picture of the very rare 1962 SCUBA Pro catalog, It is recognized by those who were a participant and witness to that era of recreational diving that SCUBA Pro was established in 1962, not 1963 as current management of SCUBA pro has announced and are currently celebrating. The acquisition of SCUBA Pro in Healthways bankruptcy by modern SCUBA Pro's two founders Dick Bonin and Gustav Dalla Valle. The book provides a concise biographies of Dick and Gus as well as biographies of all the company officials during that pioneering era. The book seamlessly transitions into a year by year description of the companies products.

Certainly a great book-- A must have for the SCUBA Pro aficionados
