From the Back Cover
"Listen to those millions of women runners. Listen to their quiet breaths as they talk in predawn pairs, before the rest of the family wakes --the lessons and questions they share to the rhythm of steady footsteps.
'I never thought I could . . . ' 'I feel so much stronger . . . '
'I'm ready to take on a new challenge . . . '
Women develop a special sorority on the roads. This bond is an understanding based on acceptance, an appreciation of how far they have come, a knowing wink that says how much is yet to be gained. And so they talk and share and grow and run. Singly and in groups, swiftly and slowly, they run." --Dagny Scott

While a good reference, it's both "complete" and incomplete at the same time.
I have run off and on for years for "fun", but have never had any real "training" on how to run. I've recently set the goal to run a 5K and I was looking for a book that could teach me both at a beginner level and at an intermediate level. [Just in case I go crazy and decide to do a marathon at some point. :) ].
This book was exactly what I needed. The author starts with the very basic things [like picking a good running shoe]. She gives great training advice and training schedules for beginning runners. Then she proceeds to give advice and help to more advanced runners. The book is very thorough and complete and I think even a very experienced runner could learn some things from reading this book.
I also thought this book was very motivating - it really made me feel empowered to strive for my goal [despite being a somewhat "old" runner at age 40].
This is an excellent, helpful, well written, and easy to read "all purpose" guide for women who want to run.
