Nice book Feb 13, 2008
This book offers a nice general introduction to underwater photography, and is relatively current with its equipment discussions, etc. It offers a nice introduction to both photography in general (f-stops, exposure, etc) and the special considerations you'll face when shooting underwater (color changes with depth, strobe usage, etc). While it's targeted to those with full underwater camera setups (its discussion of strobe placement is great), it would also be useful if you have a simple housing for a point-and-shoot. It's full of great recommendations on improving the quality of your photos, and some of the tips have already helped me make better shots.
