To be fair if you are looking for the training secrets of Kenyan runners, I have to say : Look further. This book has lots of pictures and some entertaining story's but overall it's quite messy and no cutting edge trainingadvice ...

Format: Paperback
A very disappointing book. It simply doesn't live up to its title. There is some interesting history, about Kenya in general and about individual runners and coaches. But "training secrets"? Forget it.

Format: Paperback
This is one of the great books revealing how different African runners from those in western countries in terms of physical attributes and training methods. Generally, the book itself provides information that would inspire those who try to train themselves to perform well in competitions. It has also examples of training schedules that great Kenyan runners would follow during competition season. They are indeed interesting for us to know about.
