From the perspective of a non-swimmer June 28 2009
By Michelle R. Wright - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
A fantastic and inspiring book! I am not a swimmer, but found encouragement on every page for navigating life's calm and tumultuous waters. I laughed and cried my way through this page-turning collection of stories told from below the surface of the pool to the deck to the stands. I was especially moved by the narratives of those who had overcome great obstacles, whether physical or mental, to rise above, meet their challenges head-on and give glory to God for His faithfulness and deliverance.

Some of my favorite moments:

"And when I begin to struggle I remember: Use what I have, not that which I have missing." (p. 30)

"Phoebe had learned the lesson we must all learn. Whether you finish first or last - always, always, always finish strong." (p. 59)

"Perhaps God's telling me it's enough to help others learn how to get to the other side of the pool." (p. 83)

"Actually, I've come to realize life's pain has driven me to a lifesaving dependence on God, my Maker." (p.108)
Oxygen For The Swimmer June 16 2009
By Brian Pastor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Oxygen For The Swimmer is a delightful compilation of inspiring stories written by youthful beginners to Olympic champions. Not only is it a wonderful read for the water logged but also for we land lovers. God's presence can be felt within all 130 pages. A mother - daughter masterpiece. Five stars in my book.

Lack's Substance Oct. 26 2009
By L. Holter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I'm a masters swimmer. I have two kids that are age group swimmers. I'm also a Christian who is heavily involved in my church. When I ordered this book, I thought it was going to be perfect for me. Instead, I found the stories flat and lifeless. It was as if the author held an essay contest and then didn't get the number of entries she had hoped...and published the best of what she did receive.

Highly disappointed in this book. I think I could probably write something better.
