Nice little novelty item for (primarily) marathon runners Nov. 4 2009
By Nelson Aspen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is a great little stocking stuffer for the marathoner/half-marathoner on your shopping list. Anyone else will have no interest in it, but the distance-running guys and gals will get a chuckle out of this friendly little volume.

There's little, if any, actual practical advice but there are immediately-identifiable "rules" and observations we die hards appreciate. It's almost like a collection of sidebars from your favorite running magazine. They kind of stuff you might clip out and post on your fridge, stick in your running journal, or tuck into a card to a running pal.

The author comes across as a completely affable, good natured and nice guy...the exact kind of person you'd want for a running partner or running alongside you in a race.

On the plus side, it never hurts to get a few reminders about safety and courtesy from someone who's been there, too.

Very funny and useful book Oct. 30 2009
By Christine M. Luff - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book is full of humorous commentary as well as very practical information about running. I laughed out loud and nodded my head in agreement many times while reading it. I know I'll definitely pull it off my shelf again when I'm looking for information or need a good laugh. It's a great gift idea for runners, whether they're just getting started or have been running for years.

Light-hearted fun for runners of all abilities. Dec 16 2011

Checked this out at the library, and liked it enough to go get my own copy. Lot's of fun. I believe runners of all abilities and skill would enjoy this book.

Excellent book for any runner Dec 16 2011
By M. Cobb - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I read this book before I became a runner (my husband was already a runner) and I nearly died laughing. I may not have gotten all the references, but Mark Remy has a way with words. I eventually became a runner and started following Mark's articles on the Runner's World website. I then re-read the Runner's Rule Book and honestly laughed for days. So much more of it made sense to me and it was even funnier than the first time I read it. Mark is a very witty writer and doesn't take himself too seriously, which is what makes him so relatable to so many of us runners, beginners or otherwise. His tongue-in-cheek, at times self-deprecating, way of writing has drawn so many of us into his world and we have become faithful followers of the Remy Race-Face.

Essential book to the runner's library Dec 16 2011
By Fighting Irish - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
When I began running, I found Mark Remy's daily column on the Runner's World website. I was treated almost daily to the wit and wisdom and laughter that he provides to us via the web. I was ecstatic when I found out that he had a book! I bought it as soon as I found it and keep it on my "favorites" shelf in my personal library, which contains 7 bookshelves full of books. Mark Remy is a must for any runner's library, beginner or "old salt".
