Submitter: I recently bought this book at the discard sale at my local public library. The book is Skin Diving Made Easy: for Fun and Profit by Gene Tinker, copyright 1967. It features handy advice about how to profit by looting underwater archaeological sites and hunting endangered species, details about the equipment that was available for divers in 1967, and numerous references to the attractiveness of the female models in the pictures. What is most awful about this book though is that several sections have been torn out (including, to my great disappointment, the chapter on how skin diving is great for overwrought nerves). Someone noted 15 pages missing in 1993, and this book would have been horribly outdated then. Yikes!
Holly: Why the heck would a library note 15 missing pages, and then return the book to the shelf? Applause to them for finally weeding it to their used book sale!
