Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Murray Weisenfeld loves working with runners and dealing with their problems. His book is filled with evidence of that care and interest. I found the pages packed with practical, hard to find, and hard earned information for the injured runner.” —Dr. George Sheehan, author of Running and Being

“No one understands runners' injuries like Murray Weisenfeld-- and he explains it all simply, with no medicalese. He tells you, step by step, how to diagnose your aches and pains and precisely how to treat them yourself.” —Fred Lebow, President of the New York Road Runners' Club

The Runners' Repair Manual is full of useful tips on the prevention and cure of running injuries that took me years to learn. Easy to work into any normal, busy and demanding life, Murray Weisenfeld's commonsense advice will help to keep runners running by showing them how to treat themselves effectively.” —Craig Virgin, Winner of 10,000-meter event, U.S. Olympic Trials, 1980

“In simple and succinct terms, Dr. Weisenfeld discusses the most common and often most nagging running injuries, their causes, treatments, and possible measures to prevent them. Most importantly, The Runners' Repair Manual teaches runners to be aware of their bodies' signals and how to read them to minimize the risk of injury.” —Ellison Goodall, International cross country competitor

“There's nothing more depressing to a runner than having an injury that keeps you from running. Dr. Weisenfeld's book can minimize, reduce, or help eliminate those horrible non-running days by telling you exactly how to handle virtually all the injuries we runners suffer.” —Kathy Switzer, First Woman to run in the Boston Marathon

I have periodically used this book for over 20 years to figure out what was wrong with my legs or feet. Now my three teenage sons are using it. A must have book for all serious runners.

Comming off of a stress fracture this book related to my needs. This book is very well writen, it talks to you like an average joe would and not like a doctor, who uses big scientific words. It gives you an understanding for what is going on and how to treat it before it is to late. I highly recommend this book!

Written by a podiatrist, this is a wonderful book for runners. He understands that virtually nothing will stop you from running and with that premise, shows common problems and how to treat them inexpensively at home. He also lets you know when it's time to get to an orthopedist or podiatrist. I've had this book for 7 years and he kept me away from the doctor's office for 5 of them. My physical therapist and orthopedist are surprised when I tell them, 'oh, I've tried that...' The book is well worth the money. Get it!!
