Known throughout the academic community for the high-caliber nature of his scientific insights and work, Dr. Timothy Noakes is Discovery Health professor of exercise and sport science at the University of Cape Town in South Africa. He is also director of the Medical Research Council/University of Cape Town Research Unit for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine at the Sports Science Institute of South Africa in Newlands.

The National Research Foundation of South Africa considers Noakes an A-rated scientist, and in 2008 he received the Order of Mapungubwe (Silver) from the president of South Africa.

Format: Paperback
If you run, you need this book. The information in this book is applicable to absolute beginners as well as elites. Noakes teaches how to prevent injuries and treat them.

Most of the topics are covered in Lore of Running - If you already have that book, there is no need to buy this one.

The only drawback in this book is that the illustrations and photographs could have been better.

As a running coach and runner I have used this book successfully numerous times. The concept that every runner wants to get better fast and continue running is foremost in the treatments and exercises presented.
The author, Tim Noakes is the quintessential authority on the science of running as an ultrarunner and M.D. and Director of Exercise Science and Sports Medicine . Simple charts help isolate and self-diagnose and then treat your injury and the text explains how to prevent a reoccurance.

Format: Paperback
I've had this book for about 7 years and it is showing the wear! Whenever a runner comes to me with a compliant, this book is the first place I turn. I keep it in my car, so it is at every practice. We can use the book to quickly identify the potential problem based on the symptoms. From there, the book guides you on possible treatments and suggested courses of action based on severity! Very valuable!!
