Concise Easy to Follow Swimming Guide
This audiobook really delivers on what it promises in terms of making swimming really easy to understand and paving the way for new swimmers to get their feet. It handles the subject in a concise, methodical way and you feel well-guided through each step.
In particular the section on flutter kicking was very effective, and really helped me visualise how the move needs to be done. I also really liked how McCloud anticipates possible reactions from a new swimmer and reassures you that e.g. if you feel strange using new movements, this is perfectly normal. He also compares the way you feel as a beginner to the progress that experienced swimmers can make, giving you insight and a goal to aim for. Indeed, I’d say the book is equally effective for those who’ve never tried swimming and for anyone has reached a good level and wants to refine and improve.
I loved that the audiobook covers multiples key swimming positions with expert advice on each one. You can literally learn exactly how to do them, from your breathing to body position, and choose which suits you best. There’s also top nutrition and lifestyle advice to keep you at the top of your game.
Overall, ‘Swimming Made Easy’ is an insightful and highly effective guide that feels approachable and adaptable for anyone.

Swimming Made Simple!
This guide to swimming has to be one of the best types of advice books I have read. This book is so comprehensive and gives advice on so many aspects of swimming. While lesser authors may fall into the trap of overwhelming the reader with so much information, Ace McCloud has produced a book that is very easy to follow and all the guidance is well-explained.
All the swimming strokes have there own chapters and each one is broken down in a very helpful way and how you can learn or improve them. For me, the section on the backstroke was really interesting and I learnt several new ideas.
Along with the focus on the strokes the book gives excellent advice on fundamentals, proper nutrition and even strength training tips. I highly recommend this book whether you're experienced or unable to swim. The book is tremendous at taking care of both audiences.

Swimming tips and tricks!
Swimming is a seemingly easy task; some people don't think it is good exercise because it does not involve sweating; however these people are dead wrong. Swimming is a great way to burn calories while staying cool, and it can prove to be quite the difficult sport.
Between being aerodynamic in the water, and having a good breast stroke, back stroke or freestyle stroke, this audiobook has it all.
Whether you are a beginner or an expert swimmer, the tips in this book will certainly pertain to you. Also, if you are a novice swimmer for fun, or swim on a swim team, this audiobook will introduce information to you that is very helpful and new.
It helped me become a better swimmer... I would highly recommend it!

Be a Better Swimmer with these easy strategies
What did you love best about Swimming: Swimming Made Easy?
I love that the author made it very easy to understand. All of the strokes are explained beautifully so that you don't even need illustrations to achieve them. Not only are the mechanics of swimming discussed from easy strokes to the more difficult ones, everything else about swimming from diet to mental preparation is also discussed.
What did you like best about this story?
The book lets you take the lead in what you want to do. If you are really bad at swimming, it takes it slow and easy and you can feel like you've achieved something. It stresses safety and I felt comfortable only doing what I felt safe to do. I could mentally see myself doing the strokes and then it wasn't so scary when I actually tried them.
Which character – as performed by Joshua Mackey – was your favorite?
There are no characters as this is a non fiction book, but Joshua Mackey has one of those voices that makes you think you can do anything he says. He kept the book interesting and his description of the strokes and exercises to strengthen the core were exceptional. I do not think I would have gotten as much out of the book if I would have read it.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
Perfect Strokes for the Swimmer
Any additional comments?
I thought the audio book really helped because you can put the player near the pool and do everything as it is narrated in learning how to swim and do the strokes. If you were reading it, you would have to get out of the pool and read and get back in. This way you never have to leave the pool. I found the strength training part of the book very beneficial and the mental and core exercises were wonderful. It is a great book for a beginner but everyone will get something out of it.
