"His new book appeals to a potentially broader audience [than his last]. It is packed with practical advice, from how to avoid getting sick during a race, to what to look for in shoes. Included are marathon-training plans for beginners and veterans." -Orange County Register

And that is exactly it. He has a gift and he gives it his all. It is so motivating to see someone almost abuse a gift into lengths unimaginable by most. So what I took from this is that if you have a talent, whatever it is, whether it be cooking, or writing, or fixing cars... give it your all. Give it all you have. Don't sacrifice the gift.
Not because it’s bad, but because is really a hard reading format. The author tried to compile a story and a useful technical book. It is okay, but a prefer more scientific books.
In conclusion, it is a good read for any runner, but it is not what I was hoping for. At least, this book. Thanks!
50/50 is an engaging and inspiring read!
