The book is filled with full color illustrations, hand-lettered inspirational quotations, profiles of swimmers from all walks of life, photographed collections of vintage swimming gear and ephemera, and hand-drawn infographics with fascinating facts about swimming history and culture from around the world. An emphasis on swimming as a way of life makes this volume one that will speak to serious swimmers and vacation paddlers alike. The book’s foreword is written by distance swimming icon, Lynne Cox.
