Question about Books

Does anyone have a favorite book on cycling training? Doesn't matter what type of cycling since I do several kinds myself. Also let me know why it's a favorite.

Cycling Past 50.

Excellent information for older cyclists.

The cycling past 50 book really covers a lot of ground and detail...and it really has nothing to so with the age of the cyclist....of the ones I've got, I refer back to it more than others....just put a brown cover on it so no one thinks youre over the hill...

How about any cross training kind of books? Sorry for all the questions but I read a lot while traveling by plane and I really like to learn things that I can use once I get on my bike. When staying at hotels, I often use what workout facilities they have but I'm bored with stationary bike riding.
