Format: Paperback
I have a lot of books on running, but if I needed only one, it would be this one. Quite simple to understand (no real formulas), tables that explain where you are in term of your current running ability, which paces to use, how to make a training plan... everything is inside. You can use one of four predefined training plans or make your own by using Dr Daniels' instructions (how many quality workouts, which one in each phase of your preparation, their duration and pace).
Every runner knows the terms like Repetitions, Intervals, Marathon, Easy (or recovery) pace, but nobody knows what it is and how fast it is.
For the first time I found in this book which time corresponds to each one of these paces (according to my current fitness).
Even if you are not too interested to know all the physiological details on running, stress and recovery, it is worth of trying to understand the benefits of each pace.
So, once again, if I had to keep only one book on running I own - this would be The One.

Format: Paperback
My running library contains more than 20 books and I rate this one the best. It offers a truly scientific way of training. Each and every point is thoroughly explained. A book like this is an absolute delight for the thinking runner who not only wants to know what to do, but also why. The book is very practical too, as the instructions are distilled into just a few tables - all easy to use. You will learn Daniels' proven methods to improve endurance, lactate threshold, VO2Max and mechanical running speed. The real beauty of this book is that it can be used by elite runners and slow beginners alike; the tables accommodate all runners and tell us exactly what to do based on our recent race times. If I could choose only two books on running, it would be this one and The Lore of Running by Dr Tim Noakes.

This book has been a great tool for my training. After reading the book I realized that a lot of my previous training was done too fast, especially my "easy" runs. I was injured regularly. Now that I have been training at proper intensities(after reading the book), I find running more enjoyable and I'm staying injury free. The book can be a little technical, but I feel it is required to fully justify Daniel's approaches to training. This is definitely the kind of book you will keep nearby during your training as you will want to reread certain parts depending on where you are in your training. I am extremely happy with this book, and have no reservations recommending this book to beginners, mid-packers and elite runners.

I'm writing this review a couple of days after managing to qualify for the Boston Marathon with a sub 3:15 personal best thanks to this fantastic book. Not only do the plans in Jack Daniel's book actually work, he manages to explain clearly the sports science behind why you need to do particular types of runs and precisely what pace you should be aiming for with each workout.

What I particularly like about the book though is that the plans are flexible enough to fit most peoples actual lives. Two 'quality' workouts a week (including the weekend long run) and the rest of the miles run at an easy pace whenever you want during the week.

I'd strongly recommend this book to anyone who feels that they've stagnated with their running and wants to see what they are truly capable of with a little bit of effort.

After reading the long and boring "Lore of running" by Timothy Noakes, I realized that even though I learned a lot I really didn't know where to go training wise. That's where Jack Daniel's book help you most, it shows you precisely the proper training for any level you are for any distance and it explains in details the intensities you should use. It's quite a simple book but, it's an effective one for increasing your performance!

This is a good book for the uneducated runner who wants to get better. Don't get this unless you are serious though. Anyway, it was put together really well becuase everything is simple, and it all makes sense.

This book will simply improve your race times. It is well written and clear, yet with enough leeway in it's presentation as to be suitable for all runners. If you buy one book on running, this one is it.
