Get one thing out of the way first - this book does not tell you how to build a natural swimming pool. (A natural swimming pool is cleaned by the carefully balanced selection of plants growing in it. No chemicals are used.) It is a book of photographs and descriptions of a large selection of natural swimming pools. Looking through it, you get to see a lot of gardens stunningly photographed, which is entertaining for the armchair or physical gardener, and it will help you to decide if it would be practical to fit a natural swimming pool into your garden and what it could look like. If you then decide to build one then it is time to buy another book.
