Conquer Your Fear of Water
A Revolutionary Way to Learn to Swim Without Ever Feeling Afraid

Second edition of Conquer Your Fear of Water.

324 pages, 218 photos and diagrams. Ebook: Color PDF

These are the steps of overcoming fear. Humane, gentle, fun. Learn how the water works with your body and how to be in control in water over your head without ever feeling afraid. Heal fear virtually without effort. You must not blame yourself for being afraid or for not learning previously. The book is the path out of fear; the words you need to hear; the steps of learning.

Resolve these  common beliefs:

  • “I’m comfortable in shallow water: I just need to conquer the deep.”
  • “I just need to learn to breathe.”
  • “I just need to learn to tread water.”

With small, sensible, new steps that keep you happy and comfortable all the time, tap into the swimmer you were born to be. Follow the steps without pushing  yourself: you cannot possibly fail. The journey is simple and clear. The process is proven, reliable, predictable, and fun.

The 5 Circles Teaching System—the secret sauce of overcoming fear since 1983 called Miracle Swimming—has never failed for over 6000 adults.

Comfort is top priority. Comfort in deep water means you can swim. Overcoming fear does not entail strokes, which are absent from the book.

This revision includes:

  • new knowledge acquired since the first printing
  • a story that will help you let yourself off the hook for being afraid and for not learning to swim before
  • answers to readers’ questions
  • how preventing drowning is easier than you think
  • photographs that replace many line drawings and
  • lessons for using a new invention (patent approved) to learn to float securely on your own.

Shorten your learning time in swim class by reading the book. Or, learn at home with the book and Learn-to-Float Tether shown at the purchase page. Read the book from the beginning: to skip around is to miss the teaching.
