“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
