LIKE AN EPISODE OF "FRIENDS".

Written in a pleasant, friendly tone, and the information and advice, while lightly presented, is accurate and credible.
Very American, with lots of little popcorn testimonies from women "empowered" by running, which I found toe-curlingly twee. Overloaded with anecdotes about the author's own running career and life, and though she sounds like a very likeable and engaging lady, anyone who can recommend blueberries as a substitute for chocolate with an apparently straight face isn't living in the real world. Or has only ever tasted American chocolate ;o)
An ideal first book on running for women whose usual hangout in the bookshop is the self-help section. And for readers of both sexes who like to see decorative photographs of slender women doing stretches.
