«Most how-to books are too technical or too shallow. Don Fink manages to pen a unique combination of information, anecdotes, and readability. I enjoyed the read and learned a few valuable tidbits in the process. Well done!» –Scott Tinley, two-time Ironman World Champion «Don’s book certainly made me think. A truly complete book for all abilities in the sport of triathlon that leaves no subject untouched.» –Spencer Smith, three-time Triathlon World Champion
