I have significantly changed the way I eat as a result of reading the book, and I regularly recommend it to friends whether they run or not.
As is the case with Runner's World, the quality of the writing is unique amongst sports-related publications. Most running books I've encountered so far generally have poor grammar and/or spelling, and tend to read more like grad school papers than informative books. Matt Fitzgerald's writing style manages to make the subject matter interesting and enjoyable.
References to websites and other resources for more information were also very useful. The section regarding supplements and where you can find out which ones are honest about their ingredients is fantastic.
Regardless of where you are in your training, I would highly recommend this book.
This book definitely seems like the best resource out there for performance running nutrition, but I would take it with a little grain of salt sometimes (gotta get those electrolytes anyway, right?). And if you are female, I would also get the other book mentioned above because it is a wonderful compliment.
