1.0 out of 5 stars a bit short, a bit basic with no new science
I bought this book after reading a review in a triathlon magazine. I expected it to be full of new advice on how to race faster but sadly the book is more a reminder of high school physics than a go faster guide.

I am a science PhD so a book of this nature is like candy to me. Ultimately the conclusions to be made are not that different from the ones you would make on different sources but the exposition is great and it does provide some previously unread analysis. Recommended.

Fantastic book, lots of tips and advice. Some of it is quite technical and hard to get your head around but overall I found it very helpful, informative and interesting to read.

Entertaining and very informative. A worthwhile read even if you aren't a triathlete (especially for cyclists).
