Bamber, now 58, also shot his parents June and Nevill but has always maintained his innocence. ITV's White House Farm dramatises the events in Tolleshunt D'Arcy, in Essex.

Life is an Open Book, feel free to turn the page. Sober, I live daily based on my spiritual condition. Take ownership of my stuff and don't take ownership of others. Take care of my wreckage. Prayer and mediation. Whatever is true, whatever is noble, Whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praise-worthy, think about such things.

It's great to get some insight into how the legendary Sam Freas trains his athletes. He was using these things back when this book was written and is continuing to win championships today. I'm excited to learn anything I can from this guy.
Delirium
a general quide to training sprinters (usually college level)... the two best things within are his inspiring stories about his athletes, and the constant emphasis he places upon 'hammer down' full-bore sprinting in workouts throughout the book... in general, sam's methods are worth repeating, although a few outdated technical points must be altered... his interesting dryland methodologies are worth revision by any coach for total, or limited incorporation into any program... i gave it four stars (out of five) due to technique errors, but would recommend this book to anyone in terms of training 'jet-fuel' sprinters... dedicated middle distance swimmers shouldn't neglect speed work either... look for sam coaching at u. of hawaii...

A great read with a lot of useful info for swim coaches. I support Sam and his techniques because his success cannot be denied. He is the man. buy the book.
