Some publications about sprinting can be cold and technical. Others skim over the subject, rehashing the same old hackneyed sessions and beliefs.
Every page tells the reader that THIS book is for REAL. Some of the author's wise words seem to hark back to the coach I used to have - a great character of the old school.
But then Francis allies the best wisdom of the past with ground breaking theories of the modern era and presents it all in a readable format.
To summarise - a first class book for anyone with more than a passing interest in sprinting.
Francis has written honestly about what he did, what worked, what didn't and every chapter has information that can be used by any coach/conditioning consultant in their day to day dealings with athletes.
I found this book thoroughly enjoyable to read and it is a great reference book to go back to whenever new training programs need to be written.
I thoroughly recommend this title.
