I am an amateur and avid triathlete myself so I thought this book might be tailor made for myself. However, the author of the book was not a down-to-earth man. The book is full of unnecessary exaggerating and boring descriptions, and excuses when the author - an avid triathlete - failed.
The book contained only very few advices for an amateur triathlete.
Narration was no good either.
If you are a beginning or just amateur triathlete I'd suggest to listen or read Iron War or I'm here to Win by Chris McCormack.
Both, Dave Scott and Mark Allen
No, but I quite liked the narration by Seth M. Donsky
Great book, my triathlon bible. If you do a triathlon or thinking about doing, this is a must have book. Even though not, this is a great biography of two of the greatest athletes of 20th century.
Thanks to Dean Karnazes and his 50/50 I was able to improve my levels of fitness indefinitely and enjoy running better than ever. Whether you enjoy running or not, this is a great motivational book.
This is really superb book and I already listen/read this book from cover to cover multiple time. Stephen Covey is a true role model, intelligent principled person and it was a privilege to listen to his voice throughout the book. I wish I ll manage to apply habits from that book.
As an avid boxing fan, I really enjoyed listening to old stories. The book was quite factual but I liked it, as well as both main characters Max Bear and Jim Braddock, who was greatly portrayed in the movie by Russel Crowe.
An honest and revealing confession of one of the greatest athletes ever lived. I am an avid triathlete and this book was maybe the best sport's book I have read.
