I don't think anybody learning to swim has to have this book, but I do think the illustrations and explanations are good for . You are not going to learn to become a pro swimmer in a weekend. That is not what this book is about.

The 'weekend' part is a bit iffy, but this book did teach me how to swim. I had taken a swim class in college, but that basically taught me how not to drown rather than how to swim. Years later when I wanted to start lap swimming, I checked this book out of the library every time I needed to learn a new stroke. The instructions and pictures are clear and the informative.

In general: over the weekend during the weekend at/on the weekend A long weekend is a weekend that has at least three days due to a public holiday falling on either the Friday or Monday.

In general: over the weekend during the weekend at/on the weekend. It can refer to the entire duration of the weekend. My mother is coming to stay with us over the weekend. Or it can refer to something that happens at a single point but at some time within the duration of the weekend. It is not necessarily on both days. She said she would call me over the weekend. A long weekend is a weekend that has at least three days due to a public holiday falling on either the Friday or Monday. Friday is a public holiday so the Friday, Saturday and Sunday is a long weekend. Weekend or Weekends? Weekend is mostly used in singular form.

Part of the Learn-in-a-Weekend series. I learned to swim in 1995 at a local swimming center. It took me over 2 months before I could do all the strokes for 25 meters, and I went to the pool several times a week during that time

Part of the Learn-in-a-Weekend series. It took me over 2 months before I could do all the strokes for 25 meters, and I went to the pool several times a week during that time. So don't expect to learn everything in a weekend. You need to have a teacher or a coach to learn swimming, but I found this book to be very helpful as a supplement, especially the very clear photographic sequences and drawings of the strokes.

From the doggie paddle to the butterfly, the book covers all the basics--including water aerobics and basic water safety. Part of the "Learn-in-a-Weekend" series.
Tygolar
"Learn to Swim in a Weekend" by Sharron Davies is a well-illustrated book that stresses what the different parts of your body should be doing during all basic swimming strokes. The book is strong on sequences of photographs that attempt to define correct technique, and on that basis I recommend the book. It's imperative that non-swimmers have a good teacher, and this book will not replace that, however it is a decent supplement to lessons. I spent most of my life not knowing how to swim, and adult learners will especially find this book useful.

Part of the problem with this (or any other) swimming book, is that it's one thing to be able to recite the steps to be taken and to academically understand them and quite another to actually be able to proficiently execute them. My biggest annoyance is the title: few people (particularly adults who would be far more inclined to read this book) will be able to learn to swim in a weekend despite the hilariously optimistic timeline on pp. 22-23 of this book. I found that gimmicky and the clock face logo that was supposed to tell you how much time to take on every activity in your weekend to be pointless. Getting into the water supposedly takes 30 minutes to master, while the backstroke takes an hour. While getting into the water took me about two seconds to master (it must be that I'm an exceptionally fast learner); the backstroke takes a trifle more than sixty minutes to learn (it must be that I'm an exceptionally slow learner.)

The book is valuable as a reference, but always must be secondary to the instruction from a competent swimming instructor or coach. I don't think anybody learning to swim has to have this book, but I do think the illustrations and explanations are good for reinforcement purposes.

Purchased this for my Girlfriend at the time. It is not overdone and does not overwhelm the new swimmer. Just a good quick start guide. You are not going to learn to become a pro swimmer in a weekend. That is not what this book is about.

Among the best on swimming, it contains very clear and most helpful coloured pictures for each and every stroke. It's most recommended for all swimmers.

This was interesting. Bought it in order to conquer fear of swimming it demonstrates all of the basic moves, however limited help to conquer the fear.

I'm happy I purchased this as a used book. It's more of a picture book displaying equipment, how to get in & out the pool, and what swimming looks like underwater. The visuals are great, to really showing you the "how to's in a weekend" aren't there per the title. I read the entire book in bed the same day I got it. Late at night. Simple to the point, but not educating you on HOW TO SWIM and especially not in a weekend.

I realise the book give very detail demonstrations and advice for the beginners to swim. Furthermore the pictures give better understanding and encourage the beginners to swim in a leisure or relax way.
