“For anyone who dreams of doing a triathlon or needs to find motivation, You Are An Ironman, is a Fantastic Read! Steinberg follows six ordinary athletes on their individual odysseys, he illuminates their courage and commitment and inspires readers to boldly pursue their dreams.” — Lynn Cox

"The athletes are fascinating in their own right, which helps to create an instant bond with readers and should make the book a compelling and inspirational read for obsessive exercisers and couch potatoes alike." — The Associated Press

"... a great new book that any first time Ironman entrant should read." —

“…an engrossing story of pain and perseverance….compelling…”

Publishers Weekly

“Anyone dreaming of completing a triathlon or just seeking to get off the couch and into better shape will find inspiration here.”


“Steinberg breaks the mold….A great read for anyone thinking about getting off their couch and doing something extraordinary that will truly change the rest of their lives.”

"Best-selling author Jacques Steinberg might not have an Ironman finish under his belt, but he certainly deserves an honorary finish certificate for his excellent portrayal of our sport. With an outsider's view of multi-sport training and racing, the trained eye and ear of a New York Times reporter and a captivating writing style, Steinberg has managed to describe the world of Ironman in a book that reads like a suspense novel while also capturing the inspiration and emotion of our sport." —

“Steinberg keeps up his pace the whole distance and saves the best for a power surge to the climax. You Are An Ironman could be the Rocky of triathletics.”

“Steinberg is a master storyteller using his skill to narrate their stories in what reads like an epic novel—except they are true….His way of adding suspense to the story is so subtle is [sic] sneaks up on you….Whether you are an aspiring Ironman athlete yourself or not you should read this book. Between the expertly delivered story and the authentic portrayal of the people and their training there is much you can learn form their life-affirming journey while being entertained from cover to cover.”

“[A] great book to read…”

“[R]eaders will surely want to carry on and experience the excitement that leads to the finish line in Tempe, Ariz., [sic] where the race announcer proclaims to each entrant who comes across that ‘you are an Ironman.’”

Winston-Salem Journal -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch .

6 thin tales or 1 fat tale? 28. September 2012
Von P. Dixon - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
Let me start by saying that as a triathlete - Olympic, non Ironman - I've read quite a few of this "genre" now. Whilst I'm not saying I'm an expert, I'd like to think I've got some background knowledge here.

The book is an attempt to look at 6 very different people. To see the reasons why they signed up. To see how they trained. How they balanced their work/family/training. To try to get inside their heads and see how they were feeling in the year up to the Ironman. In that it's quite successful. You can't help coming away from the book thinking - I could do that. But could you?

My main downside from the book is the fact it covers 6 people. Firstly, the book felt quite disjointed jumping around trying to juggle 6 stories. I actually ended up writing little bio's inside the front cover so I could remember who was who. Secondly, the other obvious downside of writing about 6 people is that you can't go into as much detail. In comparison to other books - such as Can't Swim, Run, Ride by Andy Holgate - I don't feel the book really portrays in enough detail the sacrifices and training that these 6 people really had to put in. For instance, the Complete Idiot's Guide to Triathlon training has an Ironman training schedule that typically involves 18-22 hours of training per week. Apart from 1 character - a nurse who worked long shifts - I didn't feel we got a true sense of the disruption and the effort that these people lived through. I'm not saying the book underplayed it, it just didn't report on it.

If you're seriously thinking about entering an Ironman on the back of reading this book (and I truly hope you do), I strongly urge you to research another book in addition to this one and go into it with your eyes wide open.

Awesome! 19. November 2011
Von Peter J. Iccabazzi - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
You don't need to be a triathlete to love this book. There are so many life lessons in here and the individuals Jacques writes about are every-day common people with a dream. What they go through, sacrifice and what these people learn are the things that we all can learn from.

As a triathlete myself this book hits home for me. I understand the struggles that they all go through in preparing for what is the worlds toughest triathlon. But Ironman is more than a physical exercise. It's about mental toughness as well and what you do to prepare for that day, and what you will find on that day.

"There is no can't in Ironman."

incredibly inspirational 18. November 2011
Von trigal - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
I just started triathlon this past year and with a few races under my belt I already wanted to dream big about being able to do an ironman someday yet it seemed impossible. I feel different now. These are everyday normal people like me and you who made it happen and they share the struggles and the victory. It was a quick read for me as I looked forward to it every night before bed. It has helped me "dream big" and now an ironman is in my 2 year plan. Also, some of these characters started out with no training (ie they start the story when they were overweight to show how far they have come ).
Really a great job!

Life Changing Experience 10. Oktober 2011
Von Gayle Salinger - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
When I first saw this book I thought it would be one of those run of the mill human interest stories. As it turns out , "You Are An Ironman" offers a unique insight into the lives of Iron men and women who achieved a seemingly unascertainable goal. A fast paced read that inspires one to achieve one's own goals! Don't miss this experience.

Ironman - very motivating 1. November 2011
Von ms in ny - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Great storytelling with easy flowing narrative that I read through in a few sittings- won't bog you down. I love the concept how the author started with 6 racers at the BEGINNING and followed them through their journey not knowing in advance if there would be completed races, injuries, disappointments etc of which there are. This is much more genuine than if he started with dramatic and or famous finishers and worked backwards. We all love a sports drama story like "Miracle on Ice" but that began with a known fairy tale conclusion and then retold and usually with some Hollywood dramatic effect---here in Ironman it's genuine, at times raw using blogs of the racers but that makes it so interesting with the author not always using his voice for theirs- we really get to hear their voice- read their minds- and that is what make this motivating- it's the everyone can do it - average joe or jane type of normal guy/gal story that completely demystifies the whole Ironman for me- growing up watching Wide World of Sports and Ironman HI you thought these are gods and I could never attempt-now I see how within reach it is for me & others like me. Anybody interested in sports will not be disappointed. Anybody interested in setting a goal and achieving it whether in sports, business, or otherwise will get a good you-can-do-it uplift from this book.
