A very general marathon book, I can't say I learned anything new. This would be a suitable reference for a beginner runner. The version was dated, which was agreeable with some of the information provided. A reference to avoid coconut oil showed the informations age. I can't remember the dietary reasons for making coconut oil a super food, but my buddy Brendan Brazier can and does in his fabulous book The Thrive Diet.
Yhis was published in 2002 so it seems really old and VERY basic... like here is a water bottle, you should drink water when you run. So, unless you are brand new to running (much less marathoning) this is probablt not the book for you.
