Running coach/ultramarathon runner Dreyer's (Chi Walking) program applies principles of t'ai chi to running in a "practice" akin to yoga. Three how-to sessions cover principles and techniques and direct runners to perform specific movements; there are also guided training runs. Because this is an inherently visual, movement-based technique, it can only go so far, despite an otherwise successful adaptation to audio and the descriptive 33-page study guide. Listeners who bring open-mindedness and intention, however, will benefit from Dreyer's one-on-one lecture, which he delivers in a mellow, well-spoken voice. Recommended for all libraries.—Douglas C. Lord, Connecticut State Lib., Middletown

The real breakthrough for me came from seeing someone actually running using (what I think was) the Chi Running approach.
There may be many running books more helpful than this one, however, this was the right book at the right time for me.
Essentially, this book is about a handful of simple good mechanics of posture and form. It took me about three runs thinking about the ideas in this book before I was running faster and longer than I was before, all with no pain. Its an easy read and an easy set of concepts to digest. Definitely recommended for the average person looking to make running work as a great and inexpensive way to get fit.
