Shows good drills, but nothing spectacular, Most Coaches with experiance will know all of them in the book. It is written more to the swimmer than the coach, which gets annoying after a while. The drills tend to be more geared to people just learning to swim competitivly than the more nit picking fixs for strokes that I was looking for. However for my JR. Team, I have been using the book and my assistant that tends to coach them and has just started coaching has used it So For beginners, its fine, but if you are looking for more advansed drills, look else where

This book is quite good for a review of the majority of strokes - great help to coaches and swimmers. It cover's about 90% of all the drills I have ever seen in my swimming lifetime.

The Swimming Drill Book is very well illustrated and clearly explains how to get the best out of each swimming drill. It covers all four basic swimming strokes as well as starts and turns and the diagrams help to make each drill clear. There is nothing revolutionary in this book but it covers enough for the average basic swimmer to be able to fine-tune their swimming strokes in a clear and concise way. Recommended to anyone wanting to improve their swimming technique.

This book is useful even for people who have learned to swim as adults and occasionally need to be reminded of a few things. It takes nothing to get back into ones old habits, but having this book is a safe way of remembering how one should do it. Clear and effective illustrations make it easy to read.

This book is what it says it is. It's a complete drill book; and it covers many aspects of each exercise, images included. But I knew many drills that weren't included in this version, and I wonder which other exercised may I be missing. This is a good book, but could be better.
