This book could seriously change your life! It will instil in you a curiosity about swim technique that will make swim sessions a never ending source of delight and interest.
Most other swim books offer dry, nebulous advice that is of little practical use when you get to the pool. Using this book alone a reasonably experienced swimmer could make some serious gains in speed just by reading the chapters on balance and streamline. An adult onset swimmer will find this book opens the door to understanding the theory to efficient swimming, and also gives them the tools, through easy to understand drills, that will allow them to learn them at their own pace. There is also the option of downloading tutorial videos of all the drills and theory described in the book from the website. This is a book you will never give away,or delete, it is something you will return to again and again.
You will gain insight from nearly every sentence in this book. I bought the original book many years ago, and this opened the door to a new world of long distance outdoor swimming and triathlons, this latest edition is a more refined version but is still a revelation and as you can tell, I recommend without hesitation, whether you want to do a triathlon or swim in the sea for long distances for pleasure, or just look good swimming on holiday.
