This is a very straightforward book that explains all facets of running (or walking) a half-marathon. There are training plans for all levels, so you don't have to be a beginner to use the concepts explained here. Pick your plan, and if you want to step up or down, you can. Over-training and avoiding injury are also covered. I used one of the plans in the book to lower my half-marathon time by 10 minutes. I was very satisfied and have recommended this to several friends. I even dropped a note to Jon Ackland to say thanks.
