Just finished this one and couldn't put it down. Cover to cover, full of information and inspiration. Amby knows what she's talking about.

I am new to running and while some of the book is beyond what I am doing now it will be helpful to have the knowledge later on. Lots of encouragement and helpful tips from runners that are newer and experienced.
