Three friends drove across the Navajo Reservation in northern Arizona after backcountry skiing in Colorado. They talked about their lives, and one said, "I really shouldn't be alive today."

David Scalia's astounding story occurred in 1982, but he had a scrapbook documenting everything he told his friends that day. A scuba equipment failure caused a devastating accident. He suffered incalculable damage to his body for more than 12 grueling hours. Days later, he was given a profound choice - live or die. Almost unbelievable, this is his true story.

" Dr. Monte Anderson makes his debut in nonmedical writing with The Choice: A story of Survival and does so with a splash. The nonfiction book relates the fascinating story of his friend's 1982 diving accident near a remote island in Mexico. Dr. Anderson's recounting of the details reflects his tremendous investigative ability, as well as the diver's will to survive.
