This book is very funny in places- but really not a serious guide for a would-be marathoner. Mainly a humorous account of a dedicated couch potato's ascent to marathon-completer. Kind of reminds me of those funny parenting books written by people who obviously don't enjoy parenthood much. Good for a smile but not a terribly useful preparation for the experience- certainly wouldn't want this to be the only book I read on the subject.

Also, horrible advice on running form, no wonder her knee was destroyed by the end.
