You mean the basic one that talks about the TI technique and covers drills to swim that way? It's the 'yellow' one:

So is that yes or no? Very Happy

I think I've got to re-read the TI book, there's no way I can get anywhere near 11 strokes. By slowing down loads and getting the maximum distance before starting the next stroke I can get it down to 16 but it's really slow. Do you have a super efficient kick, WildWill?

Confused

I use a forward quadrant swiming stroke and use core muscles to propele myself through the water whilst maintaing the closest to perfct balance i can, creating the smallest hole through the water

I do not pause my stroke i keep it smooth and quiet

And in triathlon swimming, like long distance swimming, the kick is mainly for balance and shud be smooth from the hip, making the most of the propultion caused by utilising the core muscles
