Dash says of the 2nd edition, “It’s the same book but I’ve added new information. Many points have been clarified. I answered readers’ questions, and added a story to the “How Fear Heals” section. The full original “How Fear Heals” is now in the appendix. The invention of the Float Bar and Tether was added for learning to float sooner in both shallow and deep water.”
