It was 1980 and Ron Kipp, a former Air Force officer who served in Vietnam, was living in suburban Ohio and quickly climbing the corporate ladder at IBM. It appeared he had “everything” but Ron felt restless and unhappy—until he risked it all to follow his dream of owning a scuba diving business in the Cayman Islands. Ron shares stories of the hilarious, epic fails and heartwarming successes associated with his life-changing move to the tropics in his new book, From ‘Big Blue’ to the Deep Blue: How I Jumped Off the Corporate Ladder at IBM and Into My Dream of Owning a Cayman Islands Dive Center.

Far from a cautionary tale of one man’s midlife crisis, the book is an inspiration to anyone who’s ever longed for a fresh start. It’s an especially important read for scuba diving enthusiasts, as Ron’s stories provide an intimate look at the dawning days of dive travel in the Caribbean.
