5.0 out of 5 stars Book sets the pace
As a novice race walker I was keen to improve my technique. This book was recommended to me and I'm not disappointed. It is packed with useful, easy-to-understand information and advice, not only on good technique but also regarding training. There are one or two extremely helpful race walking websites but this is the only book I've come across that covers the subject...

3.0 out of 5 stars Terse yet padded

This review is from: Walking Fast (Paperback)
This book is informative but confused in its focus. It purports to be for those who want to walk fast but not race, but spends almost half its pages on training techniques (and endless charts for you to fill in) best suited for racers. Its descriptions of stride and gait are clearest if you have read other books already and understand the concepts. It is best used to supplement a trainer and not as a stand-alone guide. If you want to learn the basics, start somewhere else. That being said, what it does do, it does well. If you have learned the basics of walking and want a workout and not just a walk, this is the book for you. If you want to improve your walking endurance or speed, this book will help.
