I agree with the reviewers who say this book is "just" a collection of articles, you can find all this same info on the Internet, and there is some contradictory advice. However, for the price, it is nice to have all these great articles in one place in hardcopy. Contradictory advice? Talk to experts in any field and you'll get contracting advice. This reflects that different advice is best for different people and that some experts disagree (e.g. 1 experts says train 6 days a week, another says train 3 days a week). (Experts here meaning trainers, sports doctors, and runners who break world records and win big races).
I would give this 5 stars except for the title may be misleading. The title sounds more encyclopedic but the book is really a nicely organized collection of great articles written over the years by expert trainers, doctors and runners.
