It is a really inspiring and useful book. At times I felt that Mr. Whitten wants to make a point again and again that was already made, nevertheless I learnt several good tips from the book that contains excellent workout sessions for every swimmer and many anecdotes. My favorite is an old Masters swimmer who was not only blind but 100 years old and he entered competitions. Amazing. It is clear that Mr. Whitten adores swimming and he manages to channel his love to the reader.
