Format: Paperback
I am a beginner triathlete and I really thought this book covered the basics and then some. I am a marathoner so I didn't really go over the running section but the bike and swim sections were great for learning basics and getting some drill and cycling advice.
However, the one obvious thing missing in this book for me was training schedules. Not one in the whole book! That is really what I was looking for as a beginner because I didn't quite know how to structure my workouts on a daily basis. I did find quite a few training schedules on the internet though, and I recently bought a book with training schedules in it, so it wasn't a big deal. I found this book to be very complete in all other aspects of the triathlon so far.

This is one of the few books that really gives you some guidelines in how to put a training routine together. It explains in detail what to do according to the distance that you will be doing. It divides it according to your current fitness level, and according to the triathlon's distance. I reviewed several books in order to "get help" on as how to put a routine together, this was the best one by far. So, I really think this is a very useful book.

Excellent Intro to multisport Sept. 14 2004
By Paul H. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've run numerous races (including marathons) but I was new to the world of cycling and swimming. This book had just what I needed to get started and get going. I found the swim section especially useful and learned a great deal about what my stroke should look and feel like. The simple leasons took 3 minutes off my 750m pace (in the pool).
Some of the off beat advice (matching clothes) for example seemed a bit silly and directed to those jonesing. But in the end, this was a very useful book and got me through the Chicago Triathlon with out too much difficulty. Some of the lessons just have to be applied to be realized however (read here: Open water swimming!).
If this book would have had some serious training schedules in it, I would have given it 5 stars. It does contain a weak training bit right in the middle of the text, but it isn't all that helpful or informative.

It really is a Complete Triathlon Book! Sept. 29 2005
By Todd D. Risk - Published on Amazon.com
This book is fabulous! I used it to successfully train for my first triathlon, the Half Ironman at the Grand Coulee Dam, WA. Those who say there's not a training schedule in this book must have read it upside down. Most of the entire book is coaching you to adapt many time proven tactics to your own style and ability. The chapters are loaded with examples of different training techniques and drills. I used the many suggestions and created an individualized complete training plan. In addition to this book I also ordered Eric Harr's Triathlon Training in Four Hours a Week. While Harr's book was wonderful, I found this book from Triathlete Magazine to be far superior in detail and explanation on what and how to train for race day.

Extremely Basic and Fairly Obvious Material Jan. 23 2007
By David G. Buffa - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I read this book in a couple hours after I received it in the mail. I've competed at the most basic amatuer level in triathlons, and I've led a life that is relatively healthy (I run often, know how to swim, and I take a long bike if the weather permits). Knowing how to eat right, and how to stretch, this book provide absolutely no help to me. If, though, you've never done anything althetic before, and you don't know that "whole foods are better for you than processed foods," and you need to be told not to eat mayonaise three times a day, then maybe you should consider reading this before competing in a triathlon. I was very disappointed.
