    This book was a great resource and opened up a whole new perspec

    This book was a great resource and opened up a whole new perspective on running for me. I've been running for close to forty years, but had given up because of pain, soreness and the standard running injuries. I figured I was at the point that I had to quit. Someone told me about Galloway's method and gave me this book. It has transformed my running. I had been struggling to get back to running a consistent 5k pace after completing some radiation treatments and was discouraged by how slow I was. In under 5 months I went form struggling with a 5k to completing a half marathon, and am now working toward my first marathon (I've gotten up to 19 miles in my longest training run). At 60 I thought that I'd have to give up on my running, but I'm now running farther and enjoying it more than I ever have, without injury or the associated pain and soreness that I had come to accept. I noticed another review that was critical of the book for various reasons (mostly stylistic it seems). It may not be great literature, but it's a great resource for training tips and guidance for those who aren't pro athletes but want to continue to (or begin to) enjoy the sport. I highly recommend it.

    Judging by the title, and being published 40 years after Gallowa

    Judging by the title, and being published 40 years after Galloway began teaching the run-walk-run method, you'd think this might be the culmination of all his knowledge and experience.  Sadly, that would be wrong, as I was most disappointed to find.  This book is sorely lacking in substance.  I learned very little that I hadn't already learned from his web site or could have figured out on my own.  Galloway may know running, but he doesn't know writing.  The book is highly repetitious, disorganized, and rife with grammar, punctuation, and proofreading errors.  Much of it is in the form of lists of bullet points with little effort paid to putting these together into cohesive thought.  The lack of a co-author (or apparently even an editor) makes this a difficult read.  When describing his method, he has the bad habit of addressing the minutia before describing the basics.  It's like describing the finer points of the infield fly rule with a baseball novice before telling him the object of the game is to hit the ball with the bat and run the bases.  I had to read the book through twice (and some sections more than that) just to have an understanding of some of the basics.  Finally, I was disappointed to find no references to any research that would back his claims of running farther, faster, injury-free, with more enjoyment using the r-w-r method.  It's been 40 years, and by his account, "millions" of new runners each year try his method (p.7), so has there been no research to substantiate his claims?  Perhaps the answer is on the first page of the book:  "This book has been carefully prepared, but no responsibility is taken for the correctness of the information it contains."  That's quite a statement for an author to make.
