If you are already injured it would help you to understand what you need to do to help your balance and overloads in muscles, tendons, bones.
I enjoyed having the book on kindle because it has videos that you can watch with the routines and explanations.
The only thing I didn't like was the recommendation on eating dairy products as the main source of calcium, you could have collard greens, broccoli, kale, salmon, beans, tofu, etc.
Here there are some very good recommendations. My main issue is that all the running injuries I've had don't appear in here. I've got a pes anserinus tendinitis issue and had also a bone bruise on the metatarsals..so there is some info but not a ton. If you've got a "normal" running injury (more run of the mill) you'll find help here but you can also find it all over the internet. I found more about my injury over on Athletes Helping Athletes blog (including a full rehab plan) then in this book. So it's a good reference to have for many reasons -- but I have struck out twice on my issues for specific injuries.
