From the Back Cover

Swimming is a further volume in the Handbook of Sports Medicine and Science Series, published under the auspices of the International Olympic Committee, and focuses on interpreting current knowledge in the subject.

This second edition updates the highly successful first edition edited by Costill, Maglischo and Richardson which was published in the early 1990s. The intention of the new editors is to interpret current sports science knowledge as it specifically pertains to coaching swimmers at club, county or national level. The handbook is not intended to be a scientist-to-scientist textbook, but rather a scientist-to-physician/coach/trainer/athlete/parent handbook.

The up-to-date information about the medicine and science of Swimming is presented in a clear and readable style designed to be directly practical.
