It is super thorough but reads like a textbook. It is a great reference book so I am glad I purchased but definatly not easy reading.

Very basic.. Not my favorite book on marathon training. Hal Higdons books are better and more informative. I wouldnt buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book for first timers, May 9, 2010

I bought this book while training for my first half marathon. I read and reread several sections of this book during my training. The training guidelines absolutely worked! I adapted their 16 week training mileage increase guidelines to my schedule..(I had more than 16 weeks to train and fell somewhere between the beginner non runner and the advanced runner program). I didn't do all of the intervals, and hills recommended but I did do my best to run the quantity and quality suggested. The plan worked and running the half marathon was a good experience! Some sections seemed basic, but it was just what I needed when I reread a section for a specific question that came up as I was training. A great reference, I will still continue rereading some sections as I train for a full marathon!
