"Bridging the Gap: From Pool to Open Water" by Robert Keig Stallman

Dr. Robert Stallman has had a long career in swimming as a coach and swimming teacher and is a member of the Norwegian School of Sports Science. He has written extensively on swimming and drowning prevention.

Interesting to read and to know is that waterskills learned in the quiet closed water of the swimming pool do not transfer just like that to open, rough water. When the gap is too great many fail in an emergency, to make the transition.
