What a beautiful and inspiring book. I have to congratulate Mr Start on his beautiful photography, enough to galvanise the determination of all but the most swim shy. Add to that some stirring writing and detailed directions and maps, what's not to love?
I particularly like the way that it's so easy to look things up, with a "swims by region" list if you want to find somewhere good in a particular location. If you prefer to plan a trip based on a particular feature such as a plunge pool or a cosy pub to warm up in afterwards, there is a "swims at a glance" page which groups swims under such headings. Get this book, you won't regret it.
