Format: Paperback
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 ...

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.
