The 2008 edition includes 150 new personalities, 100 new records, and several new features, including the DAY Blue Pages; a thorough listing by country of dive resorts, liveaboards, charters and dive centres from around the world. The Diving Chronicle (The Year in Review) is 100 pages long and now makes up nearly 20% of the book. There is also a new colour section on underwater artists featuring such renowned painters as Pascal Lecocq (France), Randall Scott (USA) and Carlos Hiller (Costa Rica). All of the original contributors from the 2007 edition including DAN (Divers Alert Network) are back and several high-profile players of the diving industry such as the Historical Diving Society and SDI / TDI International, have made significant contributions to DAY 2008. New contributors and new sections have added 100 pages to the 2008 edition. If the 2007 reviews are any indication, the Diving Almanac & Yearbook 2008 promises to be a must-have book for every diver.
