The Do-Over

Order an AUTOGRAPHED copy of Karlyn's autobiography The Do-Over

Karlyn Pipes was drowning. It didn't matter that she was a world record-breaking Masters swimmer or even a lifeguard. She no longer had the strength to save herself from an addiction that was threatening to pull her under one last time. Then the phone rang. A lifeline had been extended. Would she grab it or sink deeper? Death was hours away, but choosing life meant doing everything different. Everything.

In the darkest period of her disease, at the age of 31 Karlyn found the courage, strength and resilience to turn her life around by returning to the one thing that had created both the pain and pleasure in her life…the water. She returned to heal. Today, Karlyn is one of the most accomplished competitive swimmers in the world and has been inducted into the International Swimming Hall of Fame.

Karlyn's autobiography The Do-Over takes the reader on an aquatic journey from the depths of addiction to becoming a world champion. Candid, compelling, and insightful, this is a beneath-the-surface look at a remarkable, odds-defying comeback—not just in the pool, but more importantly, in life.

Karlyn's journey as described in "The Do-Over" is a remarkable personal testimony. What she has been able to accomplish is nothing short of amazing. What touched me is her unflinching candor and detailed description of how far she fell and how far she's come back. If you, or anyone you know is ready for a "do-over," then this is the book for you.

~ John Naber, Olympic Champion, International Swimming Hall of Fame Inductee.
