I learned to swim as an adult and I'm still not comfortable in deep water. I'm also extremely awkward and self-conscious, and that doesn't help matters much either. When I read about this book in Timothy Ferriss's The 4-Hour Body, I decided to take a look.
I think it may be of some help. Total Immersion teaches a somewhat different method than I was taught in any of my swimming classes -- in fact, it's exactly opposite of some of the techniques I was taught. Will it work? I haven't tried it yet, but mean to this summer. It seems logical, I'll give it that.
