Review

""An easy-to-read, witty book that will save you time and money."" - Jordan Rapp, 5-time Ironman champion

From the Back Cover

EVERY TRIATHLETE WANTS TO GET FASTER.But while training delivers big gains early on, eventually hard work only maintains the status quo. You can try to buy speed with gear upgrades, but costly high-tech equipment doesn’t always deliver the results you’re chasing.

FASTERputs free speed at your fingertips. Aerospace engineer and seasoned triathlete Jim Gourley teaches athletes how to turn knowledge into power by exploring the forces that matter most in triathlon. You will find out how to get the most out of training, gear upgrades, and technology.

Even the fittest triathletes are subject to the laws of physics—like drag, friction, and rolling resistance. By understanding the forces that act on you and your gear in swimming, cycling, and running, you can build up a real advantage on race day. You’ll also get the truth behind the latest trends and fads in technique, training tools, and product design. And, with science on your side, you can make the smart calls to become a better, faster triathlete.

Jim Gourleyis a teacher, a writer—and yes, a rocket scientist. His articles on the science and technology of triathlon and cycling have been widely published inTriathlete,Inside Triathlon,LAVA,Peloton, andBicycle Timesmagazines.
