Customer Review

on 3 October 2012
As a keen mid pack marathon runner I had such high hopes for this book after reading the excellent reviews here and on Amazon.com. Even from the first page you can tell how the book is going to pan out "the joggers were out again on the track". It's hard to take the book seriously as it's written in old American slang, think of the character Boss Hog from the 1980's TV show "Dukes of Hazard" Sentences like "horn gawn darnit" regularly pop up as do sentances like "the high jumpers were out practicing at 3am just for kicks those boys sure were crazy all right!"I suppose if the reader had actually gone to a University in Florida in the 1970's and was a semi-Elite/Elite runner then it would be an interesting read. There are so many excellent running books out there, it's a shame that this is not one of them.
