The book was ordered as "new" yet when I received it, the cover was bent and folded over and the plastic wrap broken.
This is not the first time I have had to return "new" books. Amazon needs to tighten up on their quality control before it ships books and other products.

Now, if you love running AND reading, this is the book for you! If you spend a lot of your time reading about running in magazines and over the internet, you are in the right place. The book is well written, informative, somber and scientific. It is a reference textbook for runners. The best of its kind!
When you need refresh your knowledge, always keep this book on hand and browse.
Perfect timing to read is before start running as I did it as well.
Prompt delivery and packaging was in excellent condition.
If you're looking for a book athat gives you one answer as to the best way to train, this isn't it! The book outlines a number of different (sometimes contradicting) ways of achieving optimum performance and at the end of the day you just have to find out what works for you.
Very detailed but still accessible by a novice runner.
