Format: Paperback
this may be by far one of the most in depth volumes on swimming available. It not only covers strokes, but history of them, evolution, training tips, science & research and more! there is so much information in here, and so well documented, it would take weeks to assimilate it all. highly recommended... and i give it a 9 only because there is no suc thing is a 10.

Swimming Into The 21st Century a Dynamic Compendium 24 July 2001
By P. T. Jecko - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Cecil Colwin has produced an encyclopedia of information about competitive swimming, and he has presented it in such a readable format that anyone interested in the sport will find challenging ideas, well-documented and engagingly illustrated, on almost every page. The book is a treasure!

For a newer, updated version with more technique information 25 Mar. 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Try Colwin's new book, Breakthrough Swimming. Swimming Into the 21st Century is going out of print, but Colwin's new book is even better.

Great book by a great author. Cecil is passed, but his insight to swimming lives on in this book. Very good drawings.
