Ian - you mean Road Running for Serious Runners? If so...yes, I have used this. It doesn't give a daily training plan, but more what you should do in a week and then it is up to the individual to determine what session on what day. It covers 5k to marathon. Overall it is similar, but the advanced marathon book is obviously more specific to the marathon, and also simpler to use as you don't need to worry about planning so much.
