This book is certainly not a quick recipe. It takes time to digest the material. If you enjoy reading, it is a plus. I have read some section multiple times. Another very good running book that takes much less time to read is Daniels' Running Formula by Jack Daniels that is geared more toward elite runners, but still very helpful for midpack runners like me.
Also if you are studying exercise physiology or sports science, biomechanics etc. it has loads of references which are great to sling in the back of the bibliography...ooophs.
Finally I have a library of over 200 running books and if I had to take one to my grave this would be it.
