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!

I first found this book as a college student majoring in Kinesiology. It's old, but the diagrams and stroke movement descriptions are perfect. If you want to refine your swim stroke than this is a must have book. The diagrams of step by step arms pulls and legs kicks of freestyle, breaststroke, Butterfly, Backstroke are great for new swimmers to view as they can see just how they should pull their arms, etc. A fantastic resource.

It was as advertised and what I expected. Even though the book was well used, the book serves my needs and I refer to it often. The book was very inexpensive and really deserved a higher price. After I have benefited from the information I will make the book available to others. As such I've given this transaction a 5.

Despite some of the content being dated, the training programs and explanations are top-notch. It's an advanced read, but worth the time if you're into super-technical explanations of sports science.
