5.0 out of 5 stars One of those books you can't put down 30 Sep 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read this rather witty journey through the world of running in a couple of sittings when recovering from a few of my own runs and it's one of those books that uses bite sized nuggets of information to keep you coming back for more.

It is well researched, with lots of defined chapters taking you through the history of running up to chapters on ultras and crazy races along with lots of interesting statistics on the way.

Recommended for the beginner and the more experienced grizzled runner who will nod and laugh at some of the things written that they recognise themselves doing.

Packed with interesting facts and practical tips this book sells running. OK, most people who buy it will be runners, but for people new to running who may feel self-conscious about their style or ability, this book draws you in to the world of running. This world (as I have found) provides inspiration, support, improved health and a great deal of enjoyment. When you start running and get hooked you will want to know about it's history, you will want to know how to get faster and you may want to know more about the half, the full and what lies beyond. This book reflects the author's love for running and where it has taken him, although it is not his story. Instead, Paul Owen shares a great deal of his own discovery and has written a book for you to dip into as you wish. In short then, whatever stage you are at with your running, or if you haven't yet taken those first steps, you will find this book a superb companion.

Not a training guide but better than that: a book that really inspires you to want to put your shoes on and get out there and run hard and far.
