Very basic - perfect for a beginning runner, though there are tips for everyone given that it's a quick read. I liked that each section was only one page - made it easy to stop and start. Would be a great gift for someone just getting into running.

As a new runner, I found this book both informative and inspirational and it was a very quick read.
I actually have this in hard copy.

Interesting quick read and I think will be a good reference. Of course, I am now thirsting for more similar books.

Gives me something to think about on how to improve my training program. I was disappointed Cooper didn't discuss yoga and running and the benefits of Yoga as a meditative tools as well as enhancing core strength. Never-the-less a book I will be sure to spend an afternoon with on many occasions.

Lots of fun facts and suggestions. I think I'll skip the running in the buff, though. A fun topic: You know you're a runner give up running for can easily convert kilometers to miles and vise use "easy run" and "five miles" in the same're envious when you see runners on the road and you're driving a car. Enough spoilers. Good read.

This is not the kind of book that you curl up with like a novel; it's a mish-mash of running quotes, races to try, trivia, and advice. It's not particularly deep or comprehensive, but accomplishes what it sets out to do as a compilation of interesting running-related nuggets of wisdom.

I found it inspiring, informative, and interesting.
This is a very informative book with concise and pointed information and advice about runnning. In addition to valuable points about actua running, it includes lists of books, movies, shoe information, nutrition, interesting trivia, and personailites all about running.
This book is broken up into several small chapters that focus on nutrition, recommended races to try, great running music and movies, different training strategies, famous runners, etc. The short chapters make it read like a magazine. Fun read full of inspiring quotes.
Essentially a pretty lightweight, quick read that was, nonetheless, full of great ideas on places and races to run, books to run, movies to see, etc. Not a hallmark of running literature, but still a lot of fun and tons of great information.
Suggestions on different things you could do with running such as the different types of races, places to race and other opportunities. It was informative and somewhat interesting.

Quick read full of lots of inspiration and information! Useful info for myself and my cross country team. Great reference with lots of sources to find more info.
Very informative book. Full of great idea's, tips, storie's and encouragment. Best suited for anyone new to the sport, however a fun read for all.
It was a collection of one- to two-page essays on the topic. I pulled a few ideas and only skipped a 3 or 4 essays.
This felt more like a long running magazine article than a book ... I wanted to like it more than I did.

Had some helpful advice and interesting tidbits, but not really a lot of training info.
Good motivational tool.
