"A funny, heartfelt, serious work of evangelism." -- Peter Sagal, host of NPR's Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me! and contributor to Runner's World magazine
"Jef Mallett's comics seem to frequently express something I've done or thought of myself while training. Trizophrenia is no different. Jef has a good sense of what others in the sport are thinking. If you're a triathlete, I'm sure you will enjoy the book. It's a quick read and will leave you contemplating what you do so seriously many hours a day while chuckling at the same time." -- Joe Friel, founder of TrainingBible Coaching and author of The Triathlete's Training Bible
"Jef Mallett is a gifted, funny fellow. I enjoyed dipping in and out of Trizophrenia." -- Scott Tinley
"Following Frazz is like seeing my favorite racer winning every stage of the Tour de France. Just when I think he can't be any cooler he comes up with yet another funny truth to show me how spectacular the world really is." -- Andy Hampsten
"Jef Mallett fearlessly mines truths--sometimes uncomfortable truths--with humor and wit, and occasionally with a poignancy that can summon tears." -- Gene Weingarten, Below the Beltway columnist for The Washington Post
"I love Frazz--the way he deals with real problems and people, and makes it look so easy. He's a cool guy. Frazz says more in a few words than anyone on the comic strip page. I love him. Once you see Frazz talking about you, you know you've arrived." -- Elmore Leonard, author
"Whether you're twelve years old or pushing eighty, Frazz is the smartest comic strip going--sly, satirical, and unabashedly literate." -- Carl Hiaasen, author
"Trizophrenia would make a great gift for someone who's cheered at a lot of triathlons, someone thinking about getting into triathlons, someone training for their first triathlon, or someone who's been competing in triathlons for years." -- Steve in a Speedo
"Trizophrenia is a wonderfully humorous and informative book. I was instantly pulled into the world of a triathlete and soon realized that they may even be slightly crazier than long-distance runners. By the time I finished reading the book, I was thinking, "Hey, maybe I can actually complete a triathlon." -- Runner Dude
"Jef Mallett, the award-winning creator of the syndicated comic strip Frazz, unravels the sport's mystery and madness while raising it to new heights of hilarity." -- Humble Triathlete
"Trizophrenia is no snobbish elite-athletes-only affair. Mallett's raucous humor abounds, his illustrations are hilarious, and the footnotes add to the guffaws." -- Grand Rapids Press
"Combining great wit, detailed footnotes and comical cartoons, Trizophrenia is a great read for any cyclist, swimmer, runner, tri geek." -- BicycleSmile.com
"I understand the compulsions that come with triathlon; the training, the cost, the competition, the early mornings, the energy gels that masquerade as food. Jef Mallett makes these easily accessible to the great unwashed. His writing is smooth and clear and carries you along with a sense of fun the surrounds every sentence. Trizophrenia is a fun and informative read for anyone who loves time on a bike, on the road, or in the water." -- Greg Moody, author and critic for CBS 4 Denver
"In Trizophrenia, Mallet uses humor to make pain interesting and entertaining, as he presents the trials and tribulations of the elite athletes who swim, bike and run, all in the same race." -- Lansing City Pulse

This book gives to non-triathletes a lot of realistic and funny descriptions about some situations that we, amateur triathletes, have passed.Published 21 months ago by Davi Silvestre Moreira dos Reis
Purchased this as a gift for my Brother in Law, who competes in many marathons and triathlon events each year. He loves this book, as well as Mallett's Frazz comic strip.Published on May 21, 2013 by gocubzgo
It's like this book climbed into my mind and read me. I couldn't put it down and was laughing out loud on the commuter train. If you are a Triathlete, it's great. Read morePublished on January 17, 2013 by Jason
This book is by no means to be taken too seriously. For a new triathlete, this was a breath of fresh air; everyone has the same issues, or worse! Read morePublished on December 10, 2011 by J. Cornwell
