My triathlon library includes a great number of books on Swimming, training methods, nutrition and inspiring sport stories.
While reading so many books, I would always stumble upon revering references to "Mark Allen's Total Triathlete".
Along with Bruce Fordyce, the 9 time champion of the Comrades UltraMarathon, Mark Allen is one of the most balanced and wise athletes in the world of sport. He remained in the top for so many years, while others would burn out. One of the first to stray away from the train longer-harder-faster idea, he noticed the body needed time to rest and heal in some parts of the years. Perhaps it was one of the secrets of his longevity at the top.
Not a methology book per say, this is a great book, showing a great deal of honest and open-hearted storys and advice on our great sport of triathlon. This is a true page-turner. I read mine in one sit at the stationay bike. I believe this is a must read for any serious triathlete or enthusiast of the sport. It certainly has influenced my view of the sport.
I wish they would make a new edition!

More of a mini biography of Mark Allen, which had short chapters overall.

A lot of good advice to any triathlete that still applies to present day.

Definitely recommended to any Triathlon fan out there.

I was training for the IRONMAN marathon so I figured it would be wise and get some tips from the 2 industry legends. Dave Scott's book was informative and provided great incite on how to tackle the big day. Mark Allen's book really provided no incite, only stories about his races and not very interesting.

If you are looking for a training book, go elsewhere. If you are looking into insight as to Mark Allen's thoughts and life during the Ironman in the 80's, then read this book.

OK the book has aged since 1988, but I think it was a true blessing 22 years ago and was an inspirational read for me motivating me into my first IMs. The book is about the sport, but also about him, and I liked this. The sport has come a long way since 1988 as the gear, the training programs, and the times are way down now!

I have quite a few exercise books, and this one is a nice read in addition to addressing training. I think as athletes we need to go beyond just training and technical prescriptions to the sport and learn more about the hidden game - this classic does just that. So if you enjoy literature and would like to learn more about Mark Allen and triathlon mentality more than two decades ago - read this.

I think it's an essential read for triathletes - build some background knowledge. At the same time pick up a few more training oriented books for a well balanced tribrary. Scott's is also a classic (see link below).

A fun, easy read about the life of a pro-triathlete in the 1980's. Mark doesn't fully reveal his training and lifestyle principles, which is a bit of a shame for the keen reader, but understandable considering the book was published during his triathlon career (even before his first Ironman win).
