If you are training for an event, this book is definitely one to read. Not necessary for enthusiasts or people who pursue sports in their spare time but still worth a read nonetheless.
The author enables the reader to understand how the body processes ingested food and drink, before proceeding to explain how (and why!) to fuel the body for a more optimal performance.
Oh, and it's fully referenced throughout too, which makes life easy if you need to pull up a few journals for study or just for interest.
I hope he writes more books in the future! :)
