If you're new to cycling this book could be just what you're looking for. But if you've been around this sport for any length of time and read a lot of books on nutrition, hydration, biomechanics etc, then you will probably have covered much in this book. Probably could do with updating as well.

A good source for all those aches pains and problems that occur, especially to competitive cyclists. A knowledgeable source, with nutritional advice too, this book is great to have on the bookshelf to "dip into" from time to time.

The namedropping and promotion of the authors business is unnecessary and becomes irritating after a while.

I would nevertheless recommend it, as there is little in the way of definitive public medical texts for cyclists and this I would suggest is it. Some great training tips too.

Give it as a present to your doctor if he/she is lacking on the subject!

Andy Pruitt's Complete Medical Guide for Cyclists. Great book, this is my bible and I refer to it often. I live in two countries and must have a few of this book in each for refrence. When I start my training in the warmer country in Spring, it has lots of mountain, it is always great to refer to this book. As our fitness,flexability and age changes, so does our bike position and if you listen to your body for minor changes this book hels expplain the issue you ahve in depth and offers solutions which work!

If you start taking cycling very seriously, please do yourself a big favour. BUY this book and READ all of it as soon as possible. Trust me -- if you don't and if you are not aware of the problems that cycling could cause to your body e.g Knees. foot (hotfoot to be precise) etc, then you would definitely learn through the hard way what. So read it.

Excellent book. One area that could be expanded is the section on rehab exercises, as it did not include some basic exercises I know to be excellent for combating knee pain. Otherwise it is a good all round book to boost your knowledge for training and bike fit.

Not a new book but still full of relevant information and advice on any medical issues for cyclists. Bike technology may have moved on but the tips/ techniques and advice for dealing with pain, discomfort and injuries has not changed. Recommended.
