NANCY P. BRUNING is an author and editor specializing in how-to and fitness subjects. She has been swimming since the age of three.

From Library Journal:

Katz, an accomplished swimmer and educator, offers this update of her 1981 book of the same title ( LJ 3/15/81). She presents a graduated program to learning the basics of swimming, beginning with lessons for novice, intermediate, and advanced swimmers and progressing to demanding super workouts for the competitive swimmer. Within each level are ten detailed sublevels, plus variations, warm-ups and cool-downs, advice on physical problems, equipment, racing, and fitness. The treatment is comprehensive, clear, and detailed, though it could have benefited from more illustrations or photographs. Katz's book offers better coverage than Marianne Brems's Swim for Fitness (Chronicle, 1979), or Katherine Vaz and Chip Zempel's Swim Swim: A Complete Handbook for Fitness Swimmers ( LJ 5/1/86). This is essential for all public and academic library sports collections.
