    Poorly written, light on content

    I am an amateur cyclist. I race (masters 50+) and I am serious about training. This book has two premises: 1) cyclists need to do strength training in he off-season and 2) cyclists should not eat whatever they like while disregard to quality and quality of food, particularly in the off-season.

    Well, the second of these is a truism. Proper nutrition is fundamental to proper training, achieving optimal weight and maximal performance. However, if you are serious about doing this right, and sufficiently motivated, you would be better off reading "Racing Weight" by Fitzgerald.

    The strength training issue is much more controversial. The best coaches in the world still hotly debate whether strength training will indeed make one faster. Bigger muscles add body weight and do not translate into power (force x velocity). The limiter to power depends on the amount of oxygen we can deliver to the muscles, not on the size of the muscles. With that said, there are still many good reasons to do weight training in the off-season. Specifically, core strength will help with endurance and health. However, this Nook book has poor illustrations and is not exactly encyclopedic. If you want to do strength training (as opposed to weight lifting) I would recommend Danielson's "Core Strength" instead.
