Deep Sea Adventurer Discusses New Book

At the Back of the Boat: Richard E. Hyman


Readers review "FROGMEN"

"Outstanding publication Richard.......A welcomed addition to my library!" – Gregg

"I read a few pages every day, similar to the way you wrote it. Very few people have the foresight at that age to maintain a journal. What a treasure that must be for you and the people close to you." - Marty

"Just finished the book. Couldn't put it down. Great detail from a trip so long ago. Great read for all ages. So much detail yet you made it all understandable. What an adventure and experience you had!" – Bill

"Love the story about the Monitor. I'm envious that you've actually been there!!! Really cool." – John

"A great book. I had the pleasure of meeting Richard Hyman at a dive club presentation. What a great story. Well done." - David

"I got your book in the mail yesterday. THANK YOU! I look forward to reading it once I get it from my husband." – Becky

"I got your book in the mail yesterday and started reading it. This is a GREAT book! I'm only just into it and already want Volume 2 !!!!! I'm going to need to get more copies for relatives! I LOVE how you give explanations and insights into people and events and in the process answer questions those of us who have watched and grew up with the Cousteau programs wondered about." – Craig

"On a plane reading your book. What an adventure." – Sal

“Read your book -- awesome history” - Gary

“I enjoyed "Frogmen" very much. Thanks for writing it.”
- Bob

“What an education it was for me to read, in detail, of the many dynamics above and below the surface of the sea. I savored the technical details as well as the social interplay with the diverse crew in such close quarters. He had the grit to hold his own. I liked the style of presentation. His humor and metaphors were nicely placed and I love the music that he enjoyed. I found his epilogue very touching. ” - Jim

“I thoroughly enjoyed your book. You had quite the adventures with the Cousteau Team, as a young man…Thanks, again, for an enjoyable read.” – Neil

“It was a really fun read and very informative. I found so many things of interest. I can’t imagine steering that ship in some of those storms or diving that deep. Hopefully you are working on a sequel.” – John

“The book is a meticulously written and a very entertaining and interesting memoir that takes the reader right on board the Calypso for an intimate look at her numerous adventures. Readers will appreciate the intimate look at life aboard the ship. The book should also attract plenty of other readers drawn to the interesting subject matter and entertaining and informative narrative. Even armchair sailors who have never set foot on the deck of a ship will get a front-row seat to some eye-popping adventures, and I would be very surprised if anyone is able to put the book down without reading it from beginning to end.”
– Renee
