I'll certainly try to check one or two of those out.
My favourite sports related book of recent years was 'From last to first' by Charlie Spedding.


fyi: Dave Scott and Mark Allen are apparently *very* unhappy with Fitzgerals and his "Iron War" book and they do not endorse it in any way. I read somewhere that they are working on publishing their own. Here is a link to an open letter from Scott and Allen about the book: http://lavamagazine.com/news/an-open-letter-from-dave-scott-and-mark-allen/#axzz1ZHeYcgDU


Hi Joe, what do you think of Dave & Mark's apparent unhappiness with Matt Fitzgerald's book? The internet allows for bogus reports, and I'm not sure what to believe about this.

Joe Friel

Bruce--I don't have any thoughts on this other than it's too bad for all parties involved.


Joe - with respect - in recommending a book about which the subjects have actively voiced their disapproval, I think it would be important to disclose your relationship with Velopress, the publisher.

Joe Friel

Chris--Some of my books are published by VP. But that has nothing to do with my opinion on what books I like, however.


We'll definitely have to check out Iron War. Sounds like an exciting account of one of the greatest Iron Man races ever.
