Finding Triathlon. How Endurance Sports Explain the World   |   By Scott Tinley, Ph.D.  |  2-Time Ironman World Champion.

Finding Triathlon presents a unique perspective on endurance/extreme sports from two-time Ironman champion and world-class athlete Scott Tinley. Among other topics, it explores what it is about our nature that makes us gravitate to these kinds of sports.

Part memoir, part cultural exploration, Finding Triathlon applies the language of sports to the current trend of high-impact endurance/extreme sports interest in the main stream, acting as a lens through which we can understand the post-modern world. Through sports, honest competition and a drive to improve ourselves as a whole, we can learn how and why to live our lives. Finding Triathlon includes both personal anecdotes from the author's life and a deep, critical and often humorous interpretation of a life lived through the medium of sports.

IMPORTANT MESSAGE IN A UNIVERSAL LANGUAGE. The desire to compete, improve and reach new levels of physical fitness transcends national and cultural boundaries, making this book an inspiration for any and all looking to gain a new appreciation for loving life.

INSPIRING WORDS IN EVERYDAY TERMS. A long-time scholar of philosophy and sociology combines his experience in the sports business world to present a new way of looking at the role sports play in all our lives in simple terminology and engaging humor.

THE LATEST WORK FROM AN ESTABLISHED AUTHOR AND SPOKESMAN. Author of half a dozen previous titles with combined sales in excess of 100,000, Scott Tinley's Finding Triathlon promises to be the capstone work of a long and successful career.
