This book serves as an excellent source for any amateur runner and a great reminder of the fundamentals for the running expert.

It does a great job of breaking down the various aspects of what it takes to successfully take on running in your exercise routine. I myself am a former runner but injury and long term rehabilitation has left me a bit hesitant to start back. I really appreciated the author's specificity of different aspects of running from diet to equipment. For example, not only does the author write about different gym equipment that can be useful to your running experiences but he offers the pros and cons of the machines (i.e, elliptical and treadmills). Furthermore, the author graciously quantifies topics like when and what to eat prior to and after a run and types of foods that might work effectively. This information is helpful for any new runner who might feel overwhelmed by the process!

Without sounding glib this book is thrifty... I was able to read it over a two day period and gain exactly what I needed to motivate me - basically it was direct and got to the point. As well, you could not ask for a better price - I downloaded it to my online kindle book platform and voila, I was good to go!

Thanks for the good read - As I attempt to get back into running this book definitely nudged me closer to my goals.

There is great concern about the effect of obesity on health. Information on how to lose weight is in demand so Sam Smith's book is timely.It provides 3 easy steps to help you achieve your goals and advises that you set realistic goals and warns against overreaching.
The book advises the runner to do some warm up exercises before starting to run and also stresses the need for suitable equipment for running, as well as being aware of the surroundings to avoid injuries.
Sam Smith is also keen on getting the runner to select a running routine to suit the individual's lifestyle. Some people prefer to run on mornings, others find it convenient to run on evenings. However the book advises that late night runners should bear in mind the effect of running at that time may or may not have on their sleep.
What I also found interesting is the comparison the book makes between the amount of calories burned between running and walking. It also compared interval running with straight running and went on to tell you how to incorporate strength training with your running.
The book provides information on a healthy diet and weight loss, what to eat and when to eat and the discipline required if you want to succeed in achieving your weight loss goal through running.

Okay, I'll admit, I used to love to run. No, I didn't. I did run, though, but I never really loved it. Maybe when I was a kid growing up in the mean streets of Brooklyn, which gets a bad rap, and running was much better than standing and getting pounded on. So back then I ran... and ran...

I'd love to run again. Now that I'm old and mostly feeble and tottering from my computer to the refrigerator.

Okay, that's not entirely true. I've actually dropped almost fifteen pounds in the three weeks since I bought this book. Am I following it exactly? No. But I'm working my way to being a better runner (or faster walker - the old lady that passed me last week was walking, but c'mon - she was FAST!). This book helps.

If you want to lose weight (and who doesn't, right?) and think you might like running (and if there really IS a blond in front of you like on the cover!) then get this book.

There's a joke there. An old guy was working out in the gym when a beautiful young girl walked in and got on the treadmill. The old guy says to the young trainer "What machine should I use to impress that girl?" The trainer looks at him, then at the girl and says "I'd recommend the ATM in the lobby, sir."

Go buy the book.

I read this book out of curiosity about how I should have gone about losing weight through running. I started running nearly a year ago to lose weight and have reached a point where I can say that it was successful and sustainable. While I did not have the benefit of this book initially, what I discovered while reading it is that the author recommends the same approaches which I used, or learned to use the hard way by trial and error. So I can say, first hand, that they are effective.

This book is a short concise overview of running to lose weight. Some of the key points covered are starting out slowly, avoiding injury, using proper equipment and choosing the most effective distance and intervals for weight loss. The book is a great primer to get one started on a sustainable approach to long term fitness, but if you adopt running, you will eventually want to do additional reading on the subject beyond this title.
