Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Katz, an accomplished swimmer and educator, offers this update of her 1981 book of the same title ( LJ 3/15/81). She presents a graduated program to learning the basics of swimming, beginning with lessons for novice, intermediate, and advanced swimmers and progressing to demanding super workouts for the competitive swimmer. Within each level are ten detailed sublevels, plus variations, warm-ups and cool-downs, advice on physical problems, equipment, racing, and fitness. The treatment is comprehensive, clear, and detailed, though it could have benefited from more illustrations or photographs. Katz's book offers better coverage than Marianne Brems's Swim for Fitness (Chronicle, 1979), or Katherine Vaz and Chip Zempel's Swim Swim: A Complete Handbook for Fitness Swimmers ( LJ 5/1/86). This is essential for all public and academic library sports collections.-- Sandra Math, St. John's Univ. Lib., New York
From the Publisher
“Dr. Jane Katz is an aquatic authority one should pay attention to. We all cannot have Dr. Katz to teach us on a regular basis, but we can keep this book close by.”

--John A. Butterfield, former Executive Director of the President’s Council on Physical Fitness and Sports
