This book has much to offer the reflective athlete or regular exerciser, and can usefully be read as a series of essay on particular areas of sport, such as overtraining, the effects of aging, stretching, competition, etc.
I read many books on swimming in the last 2 years, almost all related to the specifics of training or strokes etc, and this book, which is neither about why or how to swim, or when or how much to train, was far more rewarding in it's general reflection on life and sport and aging.

I bought the book looking for motivation and ideas as an older athlete who is attempting to compete again. The book had many motivating examples and ideas to that end.Published on January 11, 2009 by Patrick J. Hauser
