This book is a good source of basic information for beginners runners.

Format: Hardcover
Let's say you haven't run since you were in high school, and only then because they made you in gym class. Now, because you've seen a story about a 10k run or someone older than you talks about a marathon they participated in, you are thinking of doing some running yourself. This is the book for you.

While some stuff may seem like common sense overall it is a very helpful volume with lots of good info. And when you show up for your for serious run you'll know what those things are on peoples' arms and why some guys are running with no shoes on. There's also a lot of tongue-in-cheek illustrations and info but not enough, I think, to make serious long-term runners that interested in it. I think that the addition of some running plans and perhaps a list of some of the more famous races and when they are run as an appendix might have earned this book a fifth star. That doesn't mean it's not a fun book!

I do not recommend buying this book, only because it's all common sense, however it did make me laugh out loud a few time. The author is a good story teller. But I'll probably never have to read it again, nor would I ever refer to it. It is a good read, so if you like good reads... purchase it, if you're more like me and like a good book you'll reference again and again, don't.

Overall I would give this an EH... First few pages seemed humorous, it never really progressed from there. It's definitely an easy lighthearted read, but in my opinion there are lots of better books out there. Also the constant plugs for the magazine he works for is a little shameless.

I'll admit, Remy hit it out of the park with his first release, The Runner's Rule Book. It's hard to follow up such a hilarious read, but this is about as good as it gets. Filled with practical advice, the Field Manual is not written in a stiff voice of most activity guides. Running can be fun; this you gather from this skilled author and accomplished runner.

Mark Remy brings us yet another masterpiece that all runners need. Whether you are a novice or an elite you should read this book to bring you back to why you are a runner to being with. Sprinkled with witty and practical advice, I recommend this as a must read.

Format: Hardcover
Full disclosure: I am thanked on one of the last pages of the book for inspiring a topic (The Five Stages of Marathon Grief). I also received a free copy of the book, so I do not have the full-paying customer experience.

That said, I would pay full price for the Runner's Field Manual. The book is funny, pithy and easy to read without being facile.

The book is arranged into short chapters that deal with common running problems and concerns (race-day, clothing choices, etc). These chapters give both practical and humorous advice, with some that is both practical AND humorous (how to "take care of business" while out on a run).

Well worth the purchase and read, and good to keep around for idle re-reads (especially the bit on the Five Stages of Marathon Grief).
