The chef really has a thing against frozen entrees and other processed foods, but I think they make life easier. Ease of preparation and taste are important, especially when you're trying to fit in school, work, and running and I think The Marathon Chef is lacking a bit in those very important areas.
As for the recipes themselves... they are a little too sophisticated for my tastes. The flavor combinations are unusual, like basil and fruit. Also, the ingredients are measured in grams and milliliters so you'd need to get a kitchen scale to make them.
On the plus side, the bread section is good and so are the fish recipes. If you have time to spare and a sophisticated palate then I would recommend this book to you.
