There's little, if any, actual practical advice but there are immediately-identifiable "rules" and observations we die hards appreciate. It's almost like a collection of sidebars from your favorite running magazine. They kind of stuff you might clip out and post on your fridge, stick in your running journal, or tuck into a card to a running pal.
The author comes across as a completely affable, good natured and nice guy...the exact kind of person you'd want for a running partner or running alongside you in a race.
On the plus side, it never hurts to get a few reminders about safety and courtesy from someone who's been there, too.
