I love this book so much! I have been engaged with swimming in the Czech Republic for many years and this book is like a bible for all coaches of swimming all over the word. So I am very happy to have it now!Although there are new methods of training nowadays, the majority stays the same. Thank you very much!

This is the Old Testament of Swimming. Everyone in swimming should read this as a basic primer then proceed to other resources.

You "MUST READ" this book if you are a swimming coach or want to be one!

A classic that changed the sport of swimming and who's fundamentals are applicable today. Succinctly written by a great man and coach. If I were to own just one book on swimming, this would be it.
