“This jam-packed paperback, as beautiful as it is informative, deserves a spot on every swimming lover’s coffee table. Congdon’s wild water colors splash across cheery illustrated spreads accentuated by hand-detailed literary quotes about water.… One can't help but feel revitalized after being immersed in Lisa Congdon’s Joy.” —Swimming World
“It’s hard not to smile when flipping through The Joy of Swimming. The bright, cheerful colors and playful illustrations in this slim softcover book capture the feeling of splashing in the pool on a sunny summer’s day.” —Swimmer Magazine
“For a summer read that goes down like a cool drink of H2O, thumb through The Joy of Swimming by Lisa Congdon. Congdon’s pretty illustrations (watercolors, no less) bring to life vignettes of everyday swimmers, the science of swimming, a visual history of women’s swimsuits, fun facts about freestyle, and more. You’ll be inspired not only to page-turn poolside, but also to dive right in.” —Shape
