This book is copyright 1980. Old, outdated information on much of it.

This was a big disappointment. I bought it because I saw a recommendation for it after I had an injury from running. I felt the author left key information out of the book. He never even mentions the peroneal tendons (tendons that run under the ankle to the outside of the foot and also to the big toe, and manage the stability of your steps) ... of which I have huge issues with. He also glosses over the condition of supponation, and how to handle it. (Basically doesn't discuss it at all) I felt I knew more about this than the author. Also, he recommends running with a heal strike first. I know there is a lot of disagreement on this, but as an advocate of chi-running, heal strike seems to cause bad form and injuries. I wish I could return it. :(
