With all the books on running available, deciding which one to buy is not easy. Look no further; the subtitle says it all. Runner's World magazine's executive editor Burfoot had two objectives when producing this book: to gather the best advice possible and to present the information in a user-friendly manner. Burfoot definitely succeeds in producing an up-to-date, useful guide for running enthusiasts of all ages and abilities. Every aspect of the sport is covered, from nutrition, injuries, and women's running to speed/endurance, cross-training, mental preparation, and the marathon. Complete with photos, index, and detailed table of contents, this study is a worthy purchase for all public libraries.?Larry Robert Little, Penticton P.L., B.C.
