SOME GREAT INDIVIDUAL ARTICLES, BUT NOT SO GOOD AS A WHOLE
A wide mixture of opinions, styles and subjects.
Most training books have a "coach knows best" tone, whereas this one has lots of different contributors, so is easy to dip into.
Odd structure, as it's really a collection of different articles - jumps from fitness concepts to Oprah Winfrey in a bewildering manner.
Main weakness, however, is a very strong bias towards the marathon distance, with few useful tips for shorter races. There is an irritating underlying assumption that all runners run marathons, and that shorter races, if they exist, are just warm-ups.
