Recommends it for: all triathletes/aspiring triathletes
This is my favorite triathlon training book. It's both informative AND inspiring. There are 3 30-week programs to choose from (just finish, intermediate and competitive). The intermediate will have you training for 10-15 hours/wk. That sounds like a lot, but somehow it will have you believing that the Ironman is accessible with its time management tips and VERY clear training programs.

Great structure for training - very effective. Helped my wife and I to achieve our goals in finishing the Ironman in the times we wanted. The personal stories can be a bit much, but he gets the point across.
