A quick read, I liked that the entries were alphabetized for fast reading. Had a few good points that were helpful, but overall I wouldn't recommend as the best "marathon" read out there. And despite Hal Higdon's personal success in running and teaching others about running, he does start to wear on me, especially with some of his advice that seems a little bit cheesy and silly at times. Seems a bit outdated, even though things probably haven't changed that much in running since it was written. ...more
This book had some good, quick marathon training facts. It is set up like an encyclopedia---topics are in alphabetical order with a short paragraph of information. While I wished some topics were covered more in-depth, I still appreciated much of the advice and words of wisdom from this long-time champion marathon runner/trainer.
DNF--Cute idea, with letters of the alphabets going along with various marathoning things--but dated and not that original
I really enjoyed the quotations in this book. A fun read for runners!
