"Learning the easiest way to run a marathon--like finding the easiest way to swim one--isn't undemanding. It's exacting, in place of exhausting. It requires critical, not reflexive, thinking. But that sort of difficulty is the sort that leads to Mastery, Happiness, and even a high-functioning brain. Chi Running is on the cutting edge of how people will pursue physical, mental and spiritual fitness in the 21st Century." --Terry Laughlin, author of Total Immersion: The Revolutionary Way to Swim Better, Faster and Easier
"The Dryers don't believe in "no pain, no gain" for runners. Instead, their holistic approach is a smarter and healthier way for runners to fully develop balanced body mechanics for an injury-free life. The old school, conventional running trends have created too much ill-health and pain for all athletes, but Chi Marathon changes all that. Regardless of your age and experience, you’ll learn how to run efficiently from head to toe. The result is more enjoyable, and you will now finish marathons and other endurance races feeling refreshed rather than wasted." --Dr. Philip Maffetone, author of The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing
"Chi Marathon is the perfect plan for sustainable running for all ages, abilities and for all distances, whether you enter an event or not." --Mark Cucuzzella, MD, Professor, West Virginia University School of Medicine
“Chi Marathon emphasizes the mental and physical components of running and encourages runners to be aware of how their bodies are responding during a run. The tone of the book is positive, and it supports the idea that proper technique is the key to pain-free running. The Dreyers expertly detail how to prepare for a race…many runners are likely to find value in the Dreyers’ program.” --Booklist

Here is a great example from page 39 in the book:
"pick up your training at week twelve in the ChiRunning Intermediate Marathon Training Program (not included in this book; see our website, [...] and run a half marathon for your first long run."
That training program cost $49.95 by the way...................
Basically, if you like being suckered, please, buy this book. If you would rather learn something please pick up Chi running and stick with that. If you are like me and have read Chi running but was hoping to learn more, just read Chi running again.
For Chi Runners in general this book also includes the latest information on advanced Chi Running technique that was not included in the Chi Running: A Revolutionary Approach To Effortless Injury-Free Running book ChiRunning: A Revolutionary Approach to Effortless, Injury-Free Running!
