Open Water Swimming Manual
An Expert's Survival Guide For Triathletes And Open Water Swimmers

Lynne Cox has set open water swimming records across the world, and now she has focused her decades-long experience and expertise into this definitive guide to swimming. Cox methodically addresses what is needed to succeed at and enjoy open water swimming, including choosing the right swimming suit and sunscreen; surviving in dangerous weather conditions, currents and waves; confronting various marine organisms; treating ailments, such as being stung or bitten, and much more. Cox calls upon Navy SEAL training materials and instructors' knowledge of open water swimming and safety procedures to guide her research. In addition, firsthand anecdotes from SEAL specialists and stories of Cox's own experiences serve as both warnings and proper practices to adopt.

OPEN WATER SWIMMING MANUAL provides a wealth of knowledge for all swimmers, from seasoned triathletes and expert swimmers to novices exploring open water swimming for the first time. It is, as well, the first manual of its kind to make use of oceanography and marine biology, and to weave in stories about the successes and failures of other athletes, giving us a deeper, broader understanding of this exhilarating and fast-growing sport.

"Lynne Cox is an artist of the open water. No one knows more about swimming's beauty and skill than this great champion, or could describe it with such clarity and grace. Every sport --every art-- should have a book like this and a guide like Lynne Cox."
---Christopher McDougall, author of Born To Run
