Publications as varied as Wired, Men's Fitness, and The New Yorker are abuzz over the New York Times bestseller Faster, Higher, Stronger. In it, veteran journalist Mark McClusky explains how today's top athletes are turning to advanced technology and savvy science to improve their performance. Sports buffs and readers of David Epstein and Gretchen Reynolds will want to join McClusky as he goes behind the scenes everywhere from the Olympics to the NBA Finals, from the World Series to the Tour de France, and from high-tech labs to neighborhood gyms to show how athletes at every level can incorporate cutting-edge science into their own workouts.

'A smart and important book.' Gretchen Reynolds, author of The First 20 Minutes

'Faster, Higher, Stronger is one of the most lucid and entertaining books I've read about sports science and how it is making better, faster, stronger athletes. More important, though, Mark McClusky clearly explains why this science matters to the rest of us and how we can use it in our lives. A smart and important book.' Gretchen Reynolds, author of The First 20 Minutes

'Success in top-level sports is no longer just an athletic contest—it's a learning contest that takes place on the frontiers of science, technology, and the human body. If you're interested in understanding and competing in this new world, you need to buy Mark McClusky's smart, invigorating, and useful book, right now.' Daniel Coyle, author of The Talent Code and The Secret Race

'In my more than 20 years researching the field of health and fitness, few books have captured my attention like Mark McClusky's riveting investigation of the groundbreaking science fueling elite athletic performance. Faster, Higher, Stronger breaks the code and gives everyday readers a chance to steal the cutting-edge secrets of the pros.' Dave Zinczenko, author of Eat This, Not That
