Must read for every triathlete

I have 8 years of triathlon experience with two 70.3's and one iron distance behind me and I have already registered for my next 70.3. I really enjoy this sport. This book is a fantastic way to learn the pearls of wisdom to help you really progress. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to get more out of their next triathlon.

Lots of good information & Lots of repetition!

The lack of personal triumphant story examples is the only reason I am giving this book a 4 star review. I like information wrapped around a compelling story to support the facts. There were times as I listened to the book that my mind temporarily disengaged not because the information was not good but that it lacked a little life example to keep me intrigued. I still listened to the the book and reviewed certain sections multiple times. There was a lot of repetition when it related to cross information from chapter to chapter. Consolidation of certain statements might have made each chapter feel less repetitive. Overall I probably needed to hear most of this over and over again so It would sink in.
