    The Sports Gene

    Insightful. I'll never look at training the same way again.

    A must read for coaches

    Incredibly well researched book, and thoroughly enjoyable to read. It had me rethinking much of what I had previously thought concerning what it takes to be a good athlete

    Really fascinating read

    I really enjoyed this book. Doing it all fascinating... Love the genetics aspect, but also the research that it backs it up.

    Fascinating, even for casual athletes

    If you're even a casual athlete or weekend warrior, you'll be fascinated by this study of how different athletes of varying backgrounds and echelons of performance respond to different types of training. There's a lot more to Kenyan running success than altitude, for example, but altitude training does help, and it helps some Kenyan runners far more than others. The book surfaces big questions like, what's professional sport supposed to do with people whose natural physiology trips blood-doping tests? Human beings are really, really complex organisms, and sport pushes our limits in really interesting ways. I still think about this book when I'm out for a run.
