A taste of “The Joy of Swimming”: “I want to get up in the morning and just roll over in my bed into an indoor swimming pool. And then swim to the breakfast table.” -Jimi Hendrix
The “Joy of Swimming” is arranged by theme, such as “Tackling the Ocean,” “Swimming with a Smile,” and “Mind of a Champion.” Whether you’re practically part mermaid like Lucy Charles or more like a rock, there’s something sure to get your motor going in here. We’ll leave you with a splash of words for thought from advertising mogul Charles Saatchi: “Many people cycle or swim to keep trim. But if swimming is so good for the figure, how do you explain whales?”
