I kept smiling when I learned about the science of swimming, the history of marathon swims, the history of bathing suits, and how people including Oliver Sacks, prepare for a big swimming event. As a swimmer myself, I couldn't be more delighted to have this account of how Lynn Sherr joined Lord Byron and many others in swimming the Hellespont, but there is so much more. This book also has great reference value. Its bibliography includes books both fiction and nonfiction about swimming. ( )
