This book is worthless, and the author very lackluster. I can't believe a company published this rubbish. She was a very poor athlete to begin with, and now we are supposed to believe she has all the answers. No thank you!
If you have never raced a triathlon and know nothing about the sport, then you might get a tiny bit of information from this book. However if you have any experience at all, pass this book up. It completely lacks any current information, and no good factual or clinical research to back it up. It doesn't include any testimonial from athletes she has trained. In her own words, she has only trained beginner triathletes, and never anyone at the elite level.
