Can't Sleep, Can't Train, Can't Stop: More Misadventures in Triathlon (English Edition) Reviews
You can feel the pain and suffering that Andy is facing but how he describes it, it sounds like fun. It is a great Book and I highly recommend it to everyone who is interested in triathlon. Absolutely inspiring!
Okay, aber das erste war besser. Das ist ja leider häufig so! Dennoch ein Super sympathischer Sportsmann und ein guter Autor
Cutting right to the chase; this book shouldn't have been written, the timing is way off. He should have waited awhile longer since the first book (which I give 5*).It lacks focus and subject matter, hence my opinion that he should have waited. I really get the impression that this was cranked out to capitalize on the momentum from the first book and that is a bad reason to rush publication, at least for the reader.
Many reviewers have commented on how this wasn't as good as Holgate's first book, and while I agree, the difference is minor. IronHolgs' voice is still there, and his honesty is refreshing. As someone who is hitting the plateau that comes after a few years of a sport, it is good to see that others struggle with the same thing. I'll also never complain about my bike-y problems, as Holgate has me beat by a long shot. Bottom line: A definite read. You'll enjoy it if you loved the first book.
I was a big fan of the first book and had high hopes for number 2. Its not a bad book, but it is not as captivating as the first one unfortunately. I find there are too long sections about child birth and similar matters and whereas I fully acknowledge the importance of these defining moments, its for a different book.
This is a great and entertaining story that any of us weekend warriors can relate to. A really funny and inspiring story of an athlete that truly persevered through lots of obstacles while still maintaining a life at work and at home. I laughed out loud...a lot!
I enjoyed the first book a lot and was happy to see the second one when it came out! Enjoyed reading this one as well and would get the next ones too if there are next ones forthcoming...
