More about the Swimming with shivers book – it has a wonderful collection of outdoor swimmers’ true stories of experiences in cold water, ice and winter swimming conditions. Supported with personal photographs, they explain in their own words why they thrive on getting into low temperature waters in seas, rivers, lakes and even event swimming courses cut-out of ice.

Informative and engaging the book allows the reader to understand who these swimmers are, where they swim and how they survive the afterdrop and post-swim shivers safely all year round.

The swimmers in this book are happy cold swimming, choosing to swim in the coldest water they can endure, often whilst dressed in just a swimming costume, goggles and a swim cap. Many try it for a quick dip, social swim and fun swimming events. Others do so for personal endurance challenges, swimming an ice mile with accreditation from the IISA (International Ice Swimming Association) or other cold water competitive achievements.
