J'avais des à priori sur Macca et sa suffisance. Ce livre m'a montré qu'il est simplement super compétitif et que c'est une stratégie objective pour déstabiliser ses adversaires. Quelques pépites sur l'entrainement, comme par exemple sur l'hydratation empruntée des bodybuilders.

Haven't finished the book yet, and struggling to do so. I am sure Chris is a nice guy, when taken out from the sport environment. But I definitely hate the sports man character. An ego bigger than himself, a tendency to deny everyone who thinks differently from him, an approach often indicating that he is more clever than the rest of the crowd. I know you have often to have a very strong personality to succeed in sport, but to me having a strong mental doesn't have to mean that you have to be an arse.
There are still one 2 two advices to take away from this book, but the guy writes like he's full of anger, he's the super genius of sport. I thought triathlon was sort of preserved from this mentality, Chris is the guy who shows that it is not. Once finished, I'll sell this book immediately, as I will never read it again.

Great detail and and honest portrait 24 mai 2011
Par Joe P. - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié
I'm not an Ironman; my triathlons are strictly sprint distance. But as a cyclist and swimmer, I've followed the career of Chris McCormack for years, and I both anticipated and dreaded this book. Anticipated because who wouldn't want insight into the mind of the greatest athlete in the history of triathlon? Dreaded because I was afraid it would be some publicist-softened puff piece that glossed over Macca's trademark cockiness, mental game and trash talking.

Well, I worried needlessly. "I'm Here to Win" is brilliant and exhaustive. Chris bares his soul to talk about everything from his mother's death from breast cancer to the death of his best friend on the very day that he qualified for Ironman Hawaii. You get a lengthy look inside the mind of this great athlete and realize that as incredible as his talent and training regimen are, his mind is truly what gives him the edge over younger, faster triathletes. There is gold in here, and the blow-by-blow account of the incredible 2010 Kona finish with Andreas Raelert is worth the price of the book all by itself!

Then there's the "Macca is cocky" stuff. This book pulls no punches there, either. Macca comes across as totally real and authentic, which means that sometimes, he does come across as a cocky SOB. The section that relates his "war" with Normann Stadler and Faris al-Sultan after the 2006 Ironman World Championships is absolutely priceless. I found myself alternating between thinking the guy was an obsessive egomaniac and rooting for him to take down the people who disrespected him. Of course, all that ego is balanced out by accounts like his honest, agonizing story of dropping out of the 2004 Kona race because of heat cramps only to watch a bloodied age group racer carry his bike after a terrifying crash...and finish the race.

"I'm Here to Win" is a triathlon in itself: part memoir, part training guide, and part expose of the inner workings of a sport that fascinates and punishes so many of us. Whether you love Chris McCormack or can't stand him, you've GOT to read this book.

Didn't quite hit the heights 26 mai 2013
Par P. Dixon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle
I'm a triathlete (Olympic, not Ironman) and have read quite a few other books on the subject (Chrissie Wellington's, Rich Roll, Iron War) so feel I have a good idea of the genre. Although I'm not the biggest fan of Macca, I thought I'd give it a shot.

For me the book tried to do 3 things: 1. The background story of Macca, what makes him tick; 2. The story of his races; 3. Tips for other athletes out there. I'll judge each accordingly:

I think it did a good job of explaining Macca's life. What drove him to the sport, how he approaches races. Although, as I mentioned before, I'm not a huge fan of Macca's smack talk, you do get an appreciation of WHY he does it. I can understand him a bit more now.

Getting behind the story of his races was a bit mixed. We did continually come back to the Kona triumphs and they were dealt with in some depth (especially the wins!). A lot of the other races were skipped over, but of course he can't cover all his races. What I didn't like was the chronology. I wanted to start at the beginning and progress. Instead, we'd start talking about 1997 then jump to a 2002 race or 2006. Very confusing. As an example, the last season Macca rounds up (there's a summary of each season) is....1997!?!

The "tips" section is also a bit poor. It seems like a bit of an afterthought. Don't get me wrong - I believe that if you want tips then you go to something like Joe Friel's Triathlete's Bible and none of the 'story' books give decent advice. However don't advertise your book as "Champion's Advice for Peak Performance" on the basis of the handful of common-sense 'tips' included in this book.

If you're interested in Macca's story - buy it. If you want triathlon tips - look elsewhere.

McCormack's arrogance, although it has served him well, really got to me after awhile. I am a collegiate coach, and the idea that intimidation and head games is the way to succeed did not appeal to me. I value sportsmanship and good ethical behavior as well as performance.

I loved this book. It's more than just a book on training, it's about balance in life, finding what you love, and being successful at it. I found Macca to be a true inspiration.

This audiobook has so many layers of "stellarness" it is difficult to capture all of them. No matter what you do, if you strive for excellence, this book has something for you. Fail to read/listen to it at your peril.

I am currently training for the Marine Corp Marathon, but found so many pearls of wisdom for life in general. Macca's innovator mindset should be practiced by everyone in all walks of life: including business. The skill of the Aussie reader added something and helped me work on my Macca impersonation.

This book will make you laugh, cry, and punch the sky: visceral, classy, and memorable to the last.
