This is a well written and entertaining book that has been very useful to me and my family.
The first third of the book is pretty much for complete novices to running in general, let alone treadmill running. It also has a lot of information on shopping for a treadmill, the construction/repair of equipment, etc. I plodded through all the medical disclaimers, repetitive precautionary advice, running vocabulary definitions,basic explanations of how to determine target heart reats, and other information that was of no use to my own particular needs...hoping that the actual workout programs themselves would be worth the purchase price of the book.
Unfortunately, the assorted workout programs "customized" to runners of all fitness levels and goals also managed to disappoint me. I suppose for the pure novice this book will offer some guidance (if not a little confusion, too) but for anyone with running experience, most of its content is moot.
