Dense, and absolutely must be read every single year, sometimes multiple times per year. So much new information is gained every read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Serious depth on running! March 6 2011
By A. R. Maclennan - Published on Amazon.com

Franz Bosch goes into amazing detail as to the why's and how's of running. He does make some assumptions that are not necessarily built upon solid research but it does provide the coach with food for thought at least!

3.0 out of 5 stars Lots of good info but tough to read Jan. 5 2009
By Douglas Hackett - Published on Amazon.com
I'm getting some good stuff from this book but there are a significant number of things that don't make sense or seem contradictory. I'm thinking that some of the author's intent has been lost in translation. I still feel it is valuable, but tough to read. I am a physical therapist. It may be harder to read for novice exercise enthusiasts

3.0 out of 5 stars Advanced book on speed training Nov. 2 2013
By Paul Donelson - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This is a very good read. I learned a lot. However, it is quite complicated. It is not for beginners, if you like calculus and speed training. You will like this book. I must say it is still a good read. I just prefer a more simple approach.

This book is very useful for teaching my athletes to sprint faster. It has been written at a university standard academically but has practical applications.
