After I was diagnosed with runner's knee, a friend loaned me this book. Sure, the illustrations are cheesy and super dated, and it's a bit weird reading examples from the '70s (are those people still alive? :O), but the information is still relevant and useful.

Strengthening my quads and smaller glute muscles was a focus of my physical therapy. I 'graduated' PT today, and also finished this book. I now feel armed with many tools to prevent such injuries in the future. Dr. Weisenfeld is a podiatri

Even though this book was orginally written in 1980, the author (Dr. Weisenfeld) discusses the most common and often nagging running injuries and best possible ways to prevent them. It also teaches you how to listen to your body for signs of injury.

Being a runner myself I use this book when I have pain or injuries. I find myself reading the different sections of the book two to three times a year. Would definitly recommend it for a new runner.

I have read and thread this book several times but never front to back. This will be the first time I do so. As a seasoned runner coming off a 5 year hiatus this will be a great back to basics for me.

This has been my no.1 go to book for any running related issues. I started running 30 plus years ago, I used it a lot then, and still use it today!
