You should also know that Sally has a new program that she is pushing called Zoning. The heart rate monitors designed by the company are designed for this program. You can view some clips of it on YouTube. I believe (correct me if I'm wrong) that it is a simplified version, condensing the zones into 3 and distinguishing them in the following way: Zone 1 "I can talk and it is comfortable." Zone 2 "I can talk but it is not comfortable." Zone 3 "I can't talk comfortably." It is not a great distinction between zones 2 and 3.
I don't know that I would purchase the book again. Thank goodness it was cheap.
I think Sally knows her stuff; I just don't think this book is a good representation of it.
I enjoyed the inspiring stories, though there were not too many.
The reason for not 5 star is the workout plans are randomly spaced throughout the book. I've tagged the ones I want with thin sticky notes. I wish they were compiled in one place, or that there were 2 month training plans laid out in one place. Otherwise, excellent.
1. Way too much fluff. The material in this book could have been provided in a couple of chapters. The book is filled with a lot of unnecessary filler that does not serve to improve the reader's understanding of training with a heart rate monitor.
2. The basics of heart rate training was repeated over and over again without telling the reader significantly more or new information.
3. This book contains so many careless typos I felt like I was reading an early draft copy of a mauscript prior to submission to an editor.
I don't doubt that the author is knowledgeable on this topic since she has a number of other heart rate training related books. However this one appears to have been rushed to press in an incomplete form and is one to avoid.
