I really enjoyed Brazier's first book Thrive Diet which eventually led me to explore a raw food diet (even though not all of his recipes were raw). I take fitness seriously and have struggled to find nutrition and fitness information that spoke to me as a vegan. In this second book Brazier goes deeper into training methods that were gleaned from trial and error. I really enjoyed reading it and I am currently trying out some of the training tips. I highly recommend it for anyone who is actively training and wishes to get more out of their regime, or for beginners just starting out.

Format: Paperback
Great book for anyone wanting to ramp up their fitness routine. Lots of sound advice on getting more return for the time you're putting into your workout (cause who wants to workout more than they have to?) and tons of good nutritional advice too. Brazier being a triathlete, I was hoping for more specifics on running, biking, and swimming (especially swimming), but I also see where he was going with this book and it does work.

If you're only going to buy one Brendan Brazier book though, I'd go with Thrive Diet. There's quite a bit of overlap between the two and I found Diet to be the more complete of the two books. The only thing Diet doesn't have is the 6-week workout plan.

Great book. Extremely helpful not only in a "life coaching" sense, but also in a health, nutrition and fitness sense. This book really promotes living "green", and how to push past things mentally and physically. Functional fitness and functional learning and thinking. Great job :)
