Useful if now very dated introduction to the use of power meters in cycling.This was probably the first mass market book dealing with the subject and it now shows in an environment where power meter usage is widely accepted and would be ubiquitous were it not for price.Friel spends far too long on the basics and the need for a power meter and too little detailing how to actually use one What it is useful for is the complete novice to the subject or someone contemplating taking the plunge with one relatively speaking the cost of the book is trivial compared to the technology so it s worth considering in fact finding mode. This is a comprehensive guide to using a power meter in cycling The book is already showing its age, despite being only a few years old In spite of this age, the training advice, discussion of power zones, and clear explanations of the various terminology related to cycling training and power meter usage made the book well worth the read. Excellent and quick overview of how to incorporate power into workouts Will take awhile to synthesize everything, but good nuggets throughout. a must for anyone trying to understand cycling with a power meter A revelation really I think the book may be good to a beginner, but seasoned riders will not benefit much The book is outdated and most of the concepts it gives as a breakthrough use of powermeter, became an industry standard nowadays It spends 2 3 of the book trying to convince me why I should start using a powermeter, while the main reason I read a book was that I already have one Explanations of the key performance metrics were good, but rest of the book is very superficial Training advises are vague and hardly can be used to plan you training plan there are better books for that All in all, I am disappointed If you are an experienced rider who already uses powermeter on a daily basis for a while, don t waste your time on it If you are a novice who just acquired a powermeter, or thinks about acquiring one, read it, it will not harm the language is good, some concepts explained well But be ready that you will finish the book with questions than when you started.
