i downloaded this book to my kindle and was EXTREMELY disappointed. To be fair, I only read the first quarter of the book, but it was so ridiculously full of hot air that I couldn't continue reading. The list of excuses that people make to avoid training for a marathon aren't even realistic - "running gear is too complicated" ?!?!?? "I have nothing to talk about with a training partner" !??!? "I am not good at registering in time for races"... The entire beginning of this book is written as though it was just ideas off the top of his head to fill pages. I couldn't even find one sentence of value. If it wasn't digital, i would have burnt this book.
