3.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed, 6 April 2009
I liked ths map at first, clear, and supposedly durable and waterproof. I wanted to run around the South of the island so needed something with detail. It could have a few more contours to make navigating easier as the trails in the South are poorly marked

In the end it failed me as after a 2 hour run, the printing rubbed off the durable paper which means that I no longer have a map of the area I was looking at! So it should be fine for most but beware that it does not rub in your bag or your map will disappear

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and funny, 24 Oct. 2004
I've never read any sports books before, but this is truly inspiring and more. Whether you're a hardened fell runner and know all the names from the lakes, like running in the hills, or you're injured and can't get out at the moment, this will make you want to get out there.
As well as having some great accounts of races and feats, past and present, you get to meet all the big characters, the history of all off-road running, and a feel for a year of racing, in an enjoyable structure. Through this he also gives a great comment on social history of these regions, and an understanding of the strengths and failings of all of British sport. He brilliantly describes in non-cliched ways, the thrills of running and why we all do it, and why the sport is growing on the background of a changing, risk-free and inactive society
It has everything from humour, thrills, history, philosophy and humanity.
Get it, even if you don't run (yet)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best for trekking, 23 Nov. 2003
Despite the fact that LP recommend the Richard Knight book - Marrakesh and Trekking in the High Atlas, their own book has easier to read, trustworthy and useful info on trekking in a small section that has more in its 30 pages than the entire book by Knight.
Get the LP book instead, it even has a more useful map than you can buy in Morocco!!!!
