The book is well written and useful. However, charts are used to detail the training plans, and these charts are broken up onto several nook pages, with huge sections missing! Of course, the chart sections that I need to reference have been cut out, so I have bought and read this entire book but am unable to figure out how to actually implement the training theory. This is no fault of the author's.... NOOK NEEDS TO FIX THIS ISSUE AND REFUND ME!
