I used Jeff's original edition when I started running 20 years ago. To this date, I have found nothing wrong. If I do what Jeff recommends, I'll run like the book says. If I don't follow Jeff's advice, I'll have the injury the book says. From age 30 to age 50, this book has been my trainer, and will be until the next edition.

This book is excellent. Not only are there great chapters on training conditioning and starting like most running books, it also has a chapter on running with outtraining and creating a winning mindset. This book allowed me to teach myself to have the ability to go beyond what my body wanted. Things like invisioning yourself winning, thinking up ways to stop your left brain (the part whihc wants you to stop running) from taking over, and imaginiing a lasso bringing in runners as they pass you are great ideas. It also tells the story of a man who won the 800m in the Olympics even though his leg was injured. He wanted it that bad. This is a great book for all runners. It tells everything. A must have
