The long awaited new edition of Swimming updates the highly successful first edition edited by Costill, Maglishco and Richardson which was published in the early 1990s. The Second Edition contains less material on how to swim and more on the physics of swimming. It contains information on the latest methods of analyzing swim performances.

It presents current sports science knowledge specifically relevant to coaching swimmers at club, county or national level. Covering characteristics of swimming including important concepts in propulsion, functional anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, biomechanics and psychology.


The Handbooks of Sports Medicine and Science present basic clinical and scientific information in a clear style and format as related to specific sports events drawn from the Olympic Summer and Winter Games. Each Handbook is written by a small team of authorities co-ordinated by an editor who has international respect and visibility in the particular sport activity. Their charge is to present material for medical doctors who work with athletes, team coaches who have academic preparation in basic science, physical therapists and other allied health personnel, and knowledgeable athletes. Each volume represents up-to-date information on the basic biology of the sport, conditioning techniques, nutrition, and the medical aspects of injury prevention, treatment, and rehabilitation.

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.

Review:

On the first edition: '... clear, relevant and concise delivery ...' American College of Sports Medicine, 1993

' ... this is an excellent text which I would thoroughly recommend ...' British J. of Sports Medicine, 1994

'I found the chapters relating to technical aspects of swimming to be easily understood and lucid, and much more so than the numerous other (sic) swim coaching books ....' Journal of Sports Sciences, 1994

'... informative and an extremely stimulating read.' J. of Osteopathic Education. Vol.2, No.2. 1992
