Since 1984, Galloway's Book on Running has been pleasing readers. But its phenomenal word-of-mouth success hasn't deterred author Jeff Galloway from searching for improvements. In response to reader suggestions and medical advances, the second edition features a sharpened text that includes new material on topics ranging from fat burning to running apparel.
Kick!
...[D]oes offer some cursory advice for new runners, [but] the heart of this no-nonsense book is about building mileage and training for races....We at Kick! recommend this book particularly for runners interested in developing a serious, goal-oriented running program.

Jeff Galloway's book on running is a very practical guide that will help any level of runner to improve. His training schedules fit right in with a working man's time frame. The accuracy of the section for predicting race times is so close you'd think he knew you personally! By following his advice 'not common' to all of the other books so called 'conventions' you can meet and exceed your own goals. I give tons of credit to Jeff for his training program that helped me go from no running at all to a first Marathon of 2:49:45. Of course I worked very hard for 6 months, but I had no doubts that this was the right program for me!
