"Having been banned from pools all over London for health and safety reasons, I can only gaze longingly at the sumptuous array of London pools Jenny Landreth has marshalled for her fascinating book. London swimmers rejoice!" - Jo Brand
"If you’ve been vowing to dig out your cozzie or trunks for some time, you’ll find no better inspiration than this. Dive in!" - Londonist
"Landreth is an entertaining and witty writer who does not merely dive into her subject but takes a running jump along the diving board and deftly somersaults as she plunges into it." - Hackney Citizen
