I'd have benefited more from a video with a lot of swimming from several underwater angles and commentary. Yet, it's a good buy and I keep returning to it, even now when I'm an experienced swimmer. The technical quality leaves a lot to wish for.

(Tip: for making turns, find the excellent series by goswim098 on YouTube (there is also a few good clips of people showing off some of the TI-stuff)).

My copy (from movie-mars) was dispatched long after ordering, and delivery to Europe from the US was also ridicuosly slow.

Really great training DVD. Breaks down the TI swim technique into very simple practice steps. I would have given it a 5 star but it needed some more description with the visual. I bought the book as well which filled in the gaps that the DVD had left. But in general Excellent.

Not normally one to rave about things however... I have a sprint triathlon coming up and couldn't swim more than 6 lengths (150m) without gasping for air, I was really worried with only 4 weeks to go to the event. I thought £28 was a bit steep for a DVD (still think it is) but I was desperate!
Watched the DVD in stages -taking notes for the key points and practicing them the next morning. I'm only half way through the DVD and this morning I swam 1400m in 40mins - less than 2 weeks after taking delivery!!! I love swimming. Terry Laughlin is a genius.
I know this must sound like a paid review, but honestly I've never written a review on here before but felt compelled to share.

Very good but not an enormous improvement on a previous DVD. The training advice is more clearly presented and more succinct, so I am glad that I bought this DVD.

Do not waste your money! Poorly made with monotonous monotone voice, enough to send you to sleep. Looks like it was made in the 80's. Very disappointed as hoping to gain efficiency savings for open water Triathlons. I found other videos on YouTube more beneficial.

Very detailed instructions, especially for anyone who likes the Total Immersion swimming style. I have bought most of Terry Laughlin's Books and DVDs and find them most helpful as his explanations are so detailed and logical.

I started swimming at an age of 75 years.
The books about TI are relatively old as wel.
Target: swimming as a dolphin within 3 years.
This DVD works for me, just finished 1st lesson.

Very clear instructions on video. It has improved my overall concentration and swimming technique. Only critisism is glitch on one of the lessons.

I totally bought into the idea of this.
Tried it for 7 ish swims and saw some improvement, now I dont have the time.
Here are the challenges:
1. The DVD doesnt have a booklet. You have to go on line and print one. Which doesnt match to the DVD perfectly!
2. There is, in my view, a huge amount of info and detail to remember from the lessions. They should provide laminated tips sheets... what are users meant to do, take a laptop or dvd to their local pool! That really is my key issue, unless you have a perfect visual memory, recalling everything that Terry teaches is very hard
3. The DVD doesnt explain clearly how long you should expect to do each session for.

So this could be the best ever swim coach option ever, but buyer beware and consider those rather obvious points above that I didnt consider!

When I bought this DVD I was looking for another option, viewpoint and perhaps some different tips to an existing DVD I already had; and, even if it was very similar just something different to watch and a different voice / way of explaining the technique.

My complete disappointment with the DVD is about the ability of the swimmer and the quality of coaching and filming, it is so amateur it looks like my dad in the pool in someone's garden with someone doing a voiceover - not too short of something one might expect submitted to 'You've been framed'.
