Worth the read for normal runners who are looking to reduce injuries and be smart about running. This book does not cater to any group, and provides information about as specifically as possible for a multitude of common running ailments.

This book is written in a way that will appeal to many runners at different times in their running careers. I read this as a beginner and got a lot of value from it. Then I reread it after running for a year and it was a different book.

You will not regret owning this book.

I got this book because I've had aches and pains from my recently started running and I wanted to be sure I was armed with great info on how to identify just an ache from a true injury and what I am likely to encounter. There isn't much mention of calf pain only lower leg pain from Achilles or shin area. I liked that there were chapters for what appears to be the most common running injuries. I liked the illustrations (including the stretching one's in the running injury free chapter).

I think what knocked the stars off for me were all the stories. So many I just couldn't relate too (at least not yet) so they seemed to almost get in the way of the information. For me if I'd of had some deeper explanations and more detailed diagram's (more medical?) and then the information perhaps followed by a case study or two it would have been an easier read. As it was I felt like I had to read all through these people's stories just to get the info. It made the book less navigation friendly than I would have liked. And, as noted above, I was very surprised to not find the nagging pain (perhaps injury) that I am dealing with which is my calf muscle. Although the section on Achilles's and the hamstrings helped me figure out likely it is a tight muscle and I need to apply more stretching and perhaps yoga or similar to help me assure it can handle the pressure of running. I was also surprised there wasn't a whole chapter on cross training and strength training to help assure your muscles and structure can handle your training and that your training is appropriate for level. There were tips and info sprinkled throughout but not a concentrated chapter which seems perhaps a good idea.

I think this is good for a beginner if they have not a lot of information or other books.

I found out the hard way, that if you are going to push your limits jogging, you need to do your homework. This book does a good job at sorting our the myths from scientific facts.
