4.0 out of 5 stars Keeps It Simple and Sensible, 1 July 2012
Through Julian's own experiences this book links back to the golden age of British men's distance running. The anecdotes which populate the book not only illustrate points of relevance to current runners but also provide an insight into the training and attitudes behind his success and that of his contemporaries.

The book is written to be widely accessible and doesn't provide in-depth scientific explanations of physiology or biomechanics. A lot of the sections emphasise common-sense and keeping things simple - this is a large part of the strength of the book as it is well known that common sense is not so common and getting the simple things correct is not so simple!

I definitely recommend the book to coaches and athletes looking for guidance and inspiration.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor quality product, 30 May 2009
This was a total waste of money for me. There was some sort of fault with the connection between the chargepak and the radio which meant that occasionally the radio would crackle on and off. As it wasn't clear which item the fault was with and I'd bought them from separate retailers I didn't know which to return. In frustration I banged the radio on the table and the display broke. This product has a design fault with the way the chargepak connects and as it is essential to have the chargepak if you want a portable radio it seems that the only reason for not packaging then together is to keep the headline price of the radio down.
