Luna Rain presents Deep by James Nestor. Fascinated by the sport of free diving-in which competitors descend great depths on a single breath-journalist James Nestor embeds with a gang of oceangoing extreme athletes and renegade researchers. He finds whales that communicate with other whales hundreds of miles away, sharks that swim in unerringly straight lines through pitch-black waters, and other strange phenomena. Most illuminating of all, he learns that these abilities are reflected in humans’ remarkable, and often hidden, potential-including echolocation, directional sense, and the profound physiological changes we undergo when underwater. Along the way, Nestor unlocks his own free diving skills as he communes with the pioneers who are expanding our definition of what is possible in the natural world, and in ourselves.
