awsome inspiration Aug 8, 2008
this book has been a great insipiration for my decision to get fit.. I read it avidely and now that I finished I have a better idea of how to actually get myself trained for a triathlon, but really It helped me to change my point of view regarding my ability to excersise... Great book Sally!
Dissapointing May 15, 2008
This book was a bit dissapointing and hard to follow. The writing style was straining and I felt it was a big advertisement for Danskin. I'm a newcomer to triathlons but have extensive competitive athletic experience and as much as I tried to appreciate the advice, I felt bound and gagged by repeated Danskin references.
great learning tool Dec 31, 2007
I am a beginner triathlete in every sense of the word. Although I have swam biked and ran before I had never done any competitively until my first Danskin triathlon. I bought this book after that and have gotten some really great tips and realized a lot of the things I was doing wrong. Great How to's on all three sports as well as nutrition, training and gear. I love it!!
Did not like it... Jul 8, 2007
Even as a beginner, I found it too simple for what it claims to be, and not well written enough to hold it high on a virtue other than information given.
Skip this one... Jun 13, 2006
I was not impressed. Even as a newcomer to triathlons, the book helped very little. It had some motivation, but there are far better books for that out there, and very little useful training advice. My definate advice is not to get this book--- I still regret spending my money on this one.
