Review quote

'Pitched at the intermediate and above swimmer, as well as their coaches, the book is nothing if not comprehensive. SwimSmooth has always sought to make its training resources accessible and the book follows this easy approach. Language and tone is understated but its power is in its ability to communicate ideas with casual ease. It's an excellent compendium of work and sits well with SwimSmooth's website, DVDs and blogs.' H20pen MAGAZINE OCTOBER 2012
