I worked my way through this, it's easy to follow has all the right advice in a good style for an age grouper fearful of what they've let themselves in for. You follow the training, in my case the "Novice", fitting in as much as you can around the balance of your life. I decided not to look right through the program to see what was to come, I wanted to train in the moment. I'd read the whole book just not all through the training schedules. BIG MISTAKE - get to the key part of the program only to find that some 10 weeks of training was missing. It is a missprint because the pages run sequentially even though the training period is missing. Of course by then I'd had it for so long it couldn't be returned. By all means buy this, it's a good training companion but CHECK IT ALL THE WAY THROUGH ON RECEIPT!
