i only read Padi book for UW photography. it's not bad actually. any books on composition and photography is fine. in this case National Geographic book is a good one. you can read the padi book to get specifics on UW (color loss at depth, filters, usage of strobes and macro, etc) but any other books on composition. what will make you a good photographer is taking lots of pictures and sharing them for feedback with people who's been doing it for a while. also, you can get digital photography book to learn a lot about the world of digital cameras , their functions and post processing. the padi book is a good start to familiarize yourself with concepts.

There's one simply called "Underwater Photography" by Charles Seaborne. He discusses framing, lighting, etc. The newer ones will discuss more on digital and SLR vs. pont-and-shoot. Where are you located?
