This is a useful introduction to Galloway's run-walk method, with tips on developing a good strategy, drills and how to run faster with this method. However, a number of chapters seem like a commercial for his other books (including large photos of their front covers) or products and many pages contain just testimonials - interesting read perhaps, but at this price the book should have more of the technical content. If you take these chapters away, the content is fit for an article or two in a magazine, rather that a full publication. Any novice will need to invest in a more comprehensive book on running. I feel there was much more in the 'Marathon: you can do it' (2nd ed, by the same author) from a couple of years ago. This may be just a personal preference, but I do not think pictures add anything useful to the text and are just too big in the Kindle edition.
