I just finished this book recently. I started reading it before the new year when I was picking up my running. The first couple chapters were especially helpful to me as a new runner.
The book also includes a couple chapters on appropriate training plans, eating and racing your best.
I was able to incorporate a few recommendations from this book into my running. Most helpful recently have been the stretches for the various running injuries.
What I enjoyed about this book, besides all the great information, was the personal stories from the author that were included throughout.
This is definitely a very insightful book for a new runner and even experienced runners.
