Most swimming instructors, when told I was afraid of water, just told me not to be afraid and to relax. Duh! If only it was so easy, I would be relaxed and unafraid, right?

I think this book starts at the most basic level of swimming for a section of adults like me - the "afraid of water" level and takes it from there. Been reading this for a couple of weeks and I find it very logical.

I think this is going to work and I will finally overcome my fear of water and start swimming.

After a week of swimming camp where I improved somewhat and realized I'm uncomfortable in deep water I decided to try to figure this out. One of the coaches at the camp teaches Dash's technique and recommended I look into it. So I read this book and watch the accompanying DVD. All of it makes sense. Now I'll have to put what I've read and watched into practice. One can only hope...

I heard about this book at a mini-class that introduced the philosophy of transpersonal swimming. Learning to stay in control and keeping it fun before learning to swim are the bedrock philosophies. Definitely intriguing approach to swim education. Looking forward to someday mastering these skills in an accredited course!
