Other Shores is a well-acclaimed book by Diana Nyad about her involvement in marathon swimming.

[edit] Author

Diana Nyad is an 1978 inductee as an Honour Swimmer in the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame and was nominated for the 2011 World Open Water Swimming Woman of the Year for her two attempts at swimming 103 miles from Cuba to Florida across the Straits of Florida at the age of 62 where she was ravaged by Box jellyfish.

The author and former television commentator is extraordinarily eloquent both in word and voice. She currently provides a weekly five-minute radio piece on sports for KCRW called 'The Score' (heard during KCRW's broadcast of NPR's "All Things Considered"), as well as for the Marketplace radio program. She formerly hosted the public radio program "The Savvy Traveler."

She was the keynote speaker and honored at the 2012 Global Open Water Swimming Conference and the International Marathon Swimming Hall of Fame induction ceremonies on the RMS Queen Mary on 22 September 2012 in Long Beach, California.
