This book I've borrowed from the library. I think it will be the first running book I buy.
I'm 38 years old. I've been running for only 3 years and I'm trying to get below 3 hours on a marathon. This book has given me so much insight of what is needed to become better.
I'll keep on coming back to the book, read, and be inspired by the legends.
Whether or not this is copy-paste from other sources doesn't bother me. I'm happy to have it gathered in one place.

Having been a running affectionado for 25 years, I eagerly anticipated this book. Sandrock has a great idea, running with and interviewing many distance greats from our time. He does manage to get "inside their heads" and that's of value. But much of this seems to be blatantly plagiarized out of old "Track and Field News" issues. No surprise T&FN does not include this in their book selections.
