EDDIE REESE Coaching Swimming, Teaching Life

by | Read by Chuck Warner, Dana Abbott, Eddie Reese

Biography & Memoir • 3.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2019

Chuck Warner and Dana Abbott narrate the sometimes repetitive story of Eddie Reese, longtime swimming and diving coach at the University of Texas. Listeners meet enthusiastic and nostalgic swimmers of all ages who were involved in garnering Reese's 39 Olympic Gold Medals and 15 NCAA titles. Warner's smooth delivery keeps frequent time and location changes clear. Most atmospheric is Reese's own gravelly timbre as he shares his belief that in addition to the obvious skills needed to succeed as an athlete, a strong self-image and enjoyment are key. He emphasizes that being respectful, even to defeated opponents, is essential to good sportsmanship. Poignant glimpses of family life--especially of his wife, Elinor--as well as charitable work, add immeasurably to a biography heavy on names and statistics.
