I read this around the time I ran the London Marathon. I recommend that to get the maximum enjoyment out of it.

This is a book to which every runner will be able to relate. It contains a history of the Marathon going not just back to 1981, but to ancient Greece. Yet this is no dull history textbook. The personal stories of the great, the good the not so good and the downright bizarre ensure that every page is packed with humour.

Even non-runners will enjoy reading it
