I am a bit surprised how much I liked this book. He took what could be a dry topic and made it interesting and informative. And he did so with wit and wisdom. Just about any type of athlete will discover something valuable in this book, but cycling, running, and triathletes will find this read particularly worthwhile. The book is not about specific training plans, but instead provides higher-level insights about muscle types, genetics, aerodynamics, and training. Now that I have finished the book I have to get out of the chair and on the bike so I, too, can be faster.

This is a book about the author's personal cycling career mixed with research in the realm of peak sports performance. It has a nerdy component that appeals to people like me who like books like "The Sports Gene", "The Outliers", etc. A nice bit of humor mixed in to make an amusing read for people with interest in sports. A am a triathlete and enjoyed the insights.

I have read over 50 sport science type books over the years my first was a rare translation of the east Germany book Rudern circa 1985 and my latest prior to this Joe Friels Fast after 50. This is the only time that I have finish a chapter and re-read because it's delivered insight in a very entertaining way. I was just a bit disappointed Bernard did not get a mention!

an interesting and informative view on the obsession behind elite level cycling, but slightly dated.
I've read all the rider autobiographies.
This was a purchase that I isn't research or hear about.
What an amazing book. If your into coaching or just riding better, this is for you.
Easy listening with funny stories !!!
A must read for any cycling fan
