-- Steve Pill, Discover Britain

Chris beautifully encompasses the architectural wonders of lidos around the world while zooming in on the social significance and personal affection towards them - a great book that both inspires and gives insight.

-- Tamsin Wressell, National Geographic Traveller UK

'Partly a gazetteer of new and classic outdoor pools around the world, partly a reflection of how they inspire us. ... The photographs are fabulous.'
