Editorial Reviews

Jim C
Your book's programs have helped my swimmers reach their goals. The book identifies specific machines that work particularly well in the sport of swimming. The book has also given me a bunch of do's and don'ts and things the swimmers should think about. I have already noticed changes in the swimmers. Both with their physical development and also their stroke development. Also, times have dropped. I would like to thank you for a great book to help in the progression of swimming.
