Format: Paperback
This book offers comprehensive running information but on the other hand, it offers nothing new. Most runners who've read tons of books already know all the stuff presented in this book. It's a collection of training advice from different experts on the subject.
However, this is book is a very good totality and I personally like the writing style in this book than the writing style of Noakes in the Lore of Running.
Expirienced runners don't necessarily need this book but if you are looking for a "all-in-one" book, this might be your choice.

By Ellen Gragg on June 4, 2013
Format: Paperback
It's true, this book has been out there a while, but its information is still useful, especially for the beginning runner. The chapter on flexibility by Heather C. Liston is particularly good, with her usual clarity and detailed explanations.
