Editorial Reviews

ExpressNightOut.com (Washington Post) - Vicky Hallett
We all know people who refuse to go in the pool when speedy masters swimmers are ticking off laps. This book is for them.
Good Times - Liz Grogan
Swimming is inexpensive and a great way to get a low-impact workout. Greg Whyte, a former Olympian and professor of applied sports and science, has written this illustrated handbook to help everyone from non-swimmers to advanced swimmers get the most out of the sport. He provides training programs for every level of ability and covers everything you need to know about the four main stroke techniques -- front crawl, breaststroke, backstroke, and butterfly. He also covers land training to build strength and endurance, and the 130 colour photos make it easy to follow directions.
