Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "According to the authors of this comprehensive study: "The beauty of running is its simplicity.... You just put on your running shoes, step out the door, and your sport is on!" If only it were that simple. Not only are there different types of runners-joggers, distance runners, marathoners-there are, of course, differences for individuals. Thankfully, Magill, Schwartz, and Breyer cover their subject from every angle. With over 300 photos to illustrate everything from strides to strength programs, the authors clearly and concisely give readers helpful advice to improve their practice. Runners of all levels will appreciate the book's breadth and encouraging tone; sidebars on common issues-whether running ruins one's knees, the pros and cons of lactic acid and carb-loading-set the record straight. But it's the hardcore runners and marathoners that will likely get the most out of the book's timetables, nutritional information, and detailed suggestions (such as the efficacy of swishing and spitting carb or caffeine drinks to improve performance). This is an informative, friendly guide that all runners can grow with and will likely return to over time. 393 photos. Agent: Matthew Carlini, Vigliano Associates. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
