Three new endurance books for a trio of triathlete interests.
For the sports science buff:
Bold ideas about hydration guidelines have earned Tim Noakes, Ph.D., a reputation as a bit of a zealot in the world of exercise physiology. His latest book, Waterlogged (Human Kinetics, $24.95), details why he believes endurance athletes should drink less. It reads like a textbook (don’t expect a page-turner), but if you want to know the hard science behind his beliefs, Waterlogged may change the way you look at aid stations.
