Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is the perfect book for any swimmer wanting to improve his or her style and conditioning. It is nicely written and covers a wide variety of topics such as swimming history, etiquette, health issues, exercises with weights, masters programs, competition, open water swimming, etc. Each stroke technique analysis includes very clear drawings showing the correct way as well as common mistakes. This is the best introductory swimming book that I have read.
