I had heard about this book a number of years ago from coaching colleagues but never really got round to reading it. This is a fantastic piece of work from a legend of swim coaching. I have recently been on some serious coaching courses and clinics and the principals of these courses were not dissimilar from the content of the book, from the foundation of a coaching career, philosophy, training athletes and right through to even being in the theatre of senior galas. All you will ever need is right in these pages.

HASH(0x922e9858) out of 5 stars Great help for a new coach! 18 Mar. 2000
By Rebecca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has helped me immensely. I have swam all my life and now have the opportunity to coach a high school team. So, having the right words to explain the techniques to the students is very helpful and this book has been a great source for that. I recommend this one.

HASH(0x922e9a80) out of 5 stars Not for coaches 5 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is NOT a useful book for coaches, although it can be helpful for people without a coaching education or a good swimming background. Unfortunately, this book lacks every form of depth and I don't understand why all the reviews until now were extremely positive. Dick Hannula was a great coach, but this isn't a great book. I guess the readers were lead by pride instead of objectivity.
Coaching Swimming Successfully has an attractive title, but is somewhat misleading. While reading, you do get some new thoughts about coaching, but it will not make you a coach successfully.
The book is written with a first-person narrator and would be more interesting if it wasn't, since you will get annoyed after a while by every self-glorification of the writer and his successes. Besides, it's mainly focused on the American swimming school (planning and preparation, club swimming vs. high school swimming, yard pools, etc.) and it lacks some ability for extrapolation for other swimming countries.
The `Coaching Stroke Technique' part is redundant if you are a qualified coach and you still have your textbook from the course.
The book is easy to read, gives some new thoughts and can therefore help you coach more successfully, but it is too superficial and limited for a swimming coach.

HASH(0x922e9fb4) out of 5 stars One of the greatest books on Swimming around 12 Jun. 2000
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I picked up this book in desperation. I had tried many books on swim coaching and many were out of date, simplistic, and outright useless. In Coach Hannula's book, I found a work that was worthy of it's title. Mr. Hannula has extensive knowledge of his subject and it shows in his writing. Mr. Hannula dots the book with useful and sometimes amusing aniqudotes. This book can help beginning to advanced swimmers and coaches.

HASH(0x922e9ef4) out of 5 stars Mixed reaction 11 May 2004
By Deborah S. Anderson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book had some nice ideas in it, but as a first time coach for young swimmers, this book was not terribly helpful to me, since the whole book is geared towards coaching adult swimmers. It covers just about everything else to do with coaching, but not in terrific detail. All in all, it's ok, it has good ideas in, and is probably good for a first book for an adult coach, but you will need more.
