“Ms. Renner's book is a must read for anyone learning to swim, or just as importantly, tasked with teaching an adult to swim. She manages to be straight forward and witty at the same time, not an easy task. I was able to use the techniques in this book to help teach a group of fearless Afghan women in Kabul how to swim. These women had never been in a pool, lake, or river before. Being able to hold their own in water was an amazing achievement that gave them extra self confidence as they faced a war torn world.”
- Adrienne Shade, civilian working with the women in Afghanistan
"I teach people how to be fearless, but when it came to swimming, I was a big chicken. Janet showed me how to get past my fears and swim with confidence. She can do the same for you."
– Rhonda Britten, Emmy Award-winner, author Fearless Living

Wonderful experience-not just a book!
“Learn to Swim” is a book about swimming but it feels like a healing experience—one of moving through fear—too. Janet Renner works her magic to teach technique and inspire confidence in the water, but we find ourselves carrying that grace forward out of the water and into our lives. Thank you Janet!

There is so much simple, easy to understand and apply content in this book that no matter what your experiences, we can all learn from Janet. Whether you are looking to conquer your fear of the water, get more comfortable, learn one of those “other” strokes, OR you just want to swim faster, this book is for you. Janet helps you feel successful right away. But it’s more than that. Janet breaks the process down into simple steps that you can easily remember and apply. That’s important because now you have the “keys to the kingdom“ AND a swim coach that is passionate and truly wants to see you continue to improve...for many years! I have been a swim coach since 1978, and I have seen a lot of “how-to’s” over the years. Janet’s book is going to inspire lives, change lives, and more importantly, saves lives.
