3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By PJ on October 9, 2013
Format: Paperback
Very eager to buy and read this book. Mr. and Mrs. Damm taught me a great deal about swimming, technique, competitiveness etc that helped me have a successful college career despite a nagging shoulder injury that happened outside of swimming. Many of the pointers included in this book are some of the same techniques that turned me from your average "head case" at meets to one who was focused. On a side note, while the Damm's taught me skills that were beneficial in the water, these same skills, techniques and discipline got me through medical school and helped develop me into a competent physician that remains calm in the face of medical crises.

2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Marc Rizzo on October 18, 2013
Format: Paperback
I started my swim career with the Damm's on their small CYO team back in the 1970's. Through their warm and encouraging teaching style backed with an almost obsessive quest for knowledge the Damm's quickly turned this small club team in to a local power that developed national level athletes. I have been fortunate to work with the Damm's over the last couple years with my age group team and all I can say is that they have not skipped a beat. The technique portions of this book are completely modern- stressing front quadrant free, body rotation, body position, distance per stroke, and underwater dolphin(all unknown concepts when I started out).
The portions on the mental aspects of swimming are quite possibly even more important. The Damm's point out many anecdotal examples from their vast experience to illuminate their mental awareness points. I was very fortunate to be able to read this book as the Damm's were writing it and was completely impressed at how much time they spent on making the information easy to understand for "everyone." They cover many complex concepts throughout the book; but, everything is presented in a very readable style. I highly recommend this book for swimmers, parents, and coaches.

I purchased the book for my daughter as a Santa gift. She loves it. She is a swimmer wanting to better her times in the pool, and believes this book will give her the knowledge to be more competitive.
