This is good motivational and general stuff on taking a more thoughtful, Alexander Technique inspired approach to running, but it's important to be clear that you can in no way expect to 'master the art of running' through reading this volume. Though you might feel more inspired to try!
Of course, it's questionable whether any book could really do this, but I found this volume very weak, particularly after attending one of Balk's excellent art of running workshops - definitely a more expensive route to take, but much better value and far more likely to transform your running. Bluntly, this book gives you a bit of Chi Running with an overlay of Alexander Technique. Nice idea, but not really enough substance on either, and ultimately a disappointment.
