I've twice went against his advice only to have his excerpts staring back at me as if to say, "See? I told you so. Next time follow what is here or you'll see, as I've written, what will happen."
The book is broken down, for easy reference, into various sections from "Twenty Questions 2 Months Prior to your Marathon" to "Lessons from Great Marathon Runners" excerpts on the day before, day of, and day after, and many other chapters that deal with subject matter ranging from injuries, diet, training plan and running beyond the marathon distances.
I refer to his book daily and in my training for my upcoming marathon, I feel much more confident with the ideas he has presented here which have become a sort of mantras in my focus to accomplishing my goal of completing a marathon successfully without injury.
