A great outline of training, equipment, and the basics of triathlon. Includes nutrition, mental training, visualization, stretching, and strength training. A bit heavy on the "musts," "always," and "nevers," which don't really apply unless you're serious about competition. Also, he says to "never" swim in water below 55 degrees.

Recommends it for: Triathletes
A good read for any Triathlete, complete with detailed information on training and the specific skills on each sport. Overall a good suppliment for any Triathlete. Also see Joe Friel's books.

Recommends it for: Beginner Triathletes
