"Whether you're a beginning triathlete or a seasoned pro, Joe Friel is the leading authority on triathlon training." -- Ryan Bolton, Ironman winner, Olympian

"Joe Friel's wealth of knowledge in triathlon is astounding and he has a wonderful way of sharing that knowledge with all athletes: beginners to elite professionals. If you are looking to get off to a great start in this sport, you have come to the right place!" -- Siri Lindley, Triathlon World Champion

"Any new triathlete would greatly benefit from this book, and if you were to buy just one book for your first triathlon, this would be the one!" -- TriNewbies.com

"Joe does the hard work for the beginning triathlete by condensing, prioritizing, and simplifying all the science and practical experience which he has mastered over decades of coaching."   -- Barb Lindquist, 2004 USA Olympic Team

"25 years of active multisport coaching has proven that Joe Friel has an unprecedented understanding of endurance sports. As a multiple triathlon world champion, I would consider Joe as one of the leading figures in triathlon coaching today. Joe's professional approach and practical understanding of sports physiology has helped many endurance athletes of all abilities reach their full athletic potential." -- Simon Lessing, 5-time Triathlon World Champion

"With his book, Your First Triathlon, Joe Friel uses his expert knowledge to help new triathletes use the same training principles that have made The Triathlete's Training Bible such a success." -- Gale Bernhardt, USA Triathlon Olympic Coach
