A look at our love affair with the water. The author travels the world to explore swimming's significance in many cultures, and as swimming relates to evolution, mythology, survival and well-being.

In this eloquent exploration of the human relationship to water, author Tsui examines "the universal experience of being immersed in water," whether it's in an ocean, lake, or swimming pool. The narrative is divided into five topics: survival, well-being, community, competition, and flow. A lifelong swimmer, Tsui deftly moves from one topic to another, weaving in her personal experiences. This fascinating look at the positive impact swimming has had on our lives throughout history might leave most readers eager to get back in the water as soon as possible.
