Not for the athlete who knows the basics
on 4 April 2010
While this book deserves some credit for flagging what does not work (ginseng for instance) thereby saving you both your money and your stomach, it is mostly targeted to the layman. If you have been into sport for a while and knows about concepts like tappering, you are unlikely to benefit from this book.Not even mentioning beta alanine or lactic acid buffer like Calcium bicarbonate or sodium loading are some of the obvious shortcomings. A bit disappointing especially in the light of the many (too good) reviews on that site (Marketing tactics?) which makes you question their objectivity...
