Once you get the hang of the formulas in the book (not for shallow readers flipping pages ) it is easy to understand and process. Lots of useful training nuggets as well. Along with the "Advanced Marathoning by Pete Pfitzinger" it is required reading for runners. Do squat as well though....
To get the hang of the book though, it does require some use of the brain to understand new concepts and reflect on what has been said. The first time I read it, it made sense while I was reading it but there was so much information that once I'd finished, I couldn't remember a lot of what I had read. I just had a feeling that I understand the book but couldn't cite examples or use it properly.
The second time I read the book, I took my time and use a note pad for the bits most relevant to me and it gave me all I needed to make a programme for myself. He is very conservative in what you can achieve in a given time frame which makes for a running ideology which is much less prone to injury. Definitely not a book for quick fix junkies of programmes which are big on amazing gains and promises which are unrealistic.
So, all in all, this is a great book but only for someone who is prepared to put time in to learn it. But like everything, the more you invest in something, the more you get out of it. That definitely applies to this book.
If you on the fence... Just go for it. You won't regret it!
