I found Shanti's book to be engaging, informative and inspiring.

I did read this book a couple of years ago when it came out but wanted to take the time for a quick note to anyone who may be thinking about buying.
Leslie Devlin
This is a great book that I'd recommend to anyone, not just women.

It's about time someone wrote a book that focused exclusively on women runners. Their stories aren't just about running, but about what is possible with determination, drive, focus, and commitment. Sit long enough to read this book because after reading it nothing will stop you from wanting to go out for a run.

I'm not a woman and I don't run. I'm 64 and recovering from a recent cancer procedure. This extremely well-written and thoroughly engaging book has inspired my wife and me to double our walking effort. Not to mention how much fun it was to read.

This collection of profiles is inspirational enough to get even the laziest of couch potatoes off their butts and out on the running trails. I loved the range of runners profiled, from hardcore ultramarathoners to everyday women balancing career and family. Women Who Run has a little something for everyone. I dare you to read a chapter and not want to throw on your sneakers and go for a run afterward!

Format: Paperback
Can't really say I found much motivation from this book. It was sort of an overview of female runners and their careers, not feedback from them as to what goes on in their hearts and minds to make them excel and succeed. It's probably worth a quick read for most, but I wouldn't expect a life-changing work to get you running or help you to new heights if you already do. Actual training tactics weren't covered much either.

Format: Paperback
From the rave reviews of others, I expected this book to be incredibly inspiring... and it fell short of the mark. While some of the stories were pretty interesting, none of them were particularly inspiring, and the fact that the entire book was written in mostly third person detracted from the experience. I expected first-person essays from women writers, or at least interviews (since the preface alluded to that) but it read like mini-biographies about the runners, not really getting into personal, open (and thus moving) detail. Sosienski's writing also leaves something to be desired. I was more inspired reading The Complete Book of Running for Women, which isn't even really a book written just to inspire, as this one seemed to have been.

This is a great book that I'd recommend to anyone, not just women. I had trouble putting it down and have since gone online to read more about some of the strong, wonderful women featured in this book.
