Dicharry writes from the perspective of a formerly often-injured runner so fellow runners will identify with his point of view. His words will give hope to anyone with arthritis, worn cartilage, torn menisci or other injuries that have led physicians to advise: stop running. Kudos to the author for presenting rather technical information in a fun, easy-to-read way.
I think of JD's book more as "anatomy of running". While runners run .. most of us don't do it well. Indeed running is a skill that can be deconstructed, analysed, refined, and practised, practised and practised.
This is a MUST have for anyone who runs on a regular basis.

An excellent framework to understand the physical stability needs to reduce injury risk in running, with references. Lots of simple tests and preventive exercises outlined.Published 20 months ago by Mark Fromberg
Mr. Dicharry does an excellent job at convincing me I need to train my body as well as my cardio vascular system. I love his bottom-up approach.Published on July 7 2014 by Eric
