I'm not one to read running books since I just feel that one should go out and run! But this was very good...I highly recommend it to other runners and significant others of runners. Burfoot does a good job of explaining some of the basic "unexplainables" that we runners deal with. My favorite chapters were "Listening" and "Simplicity". I let go of the mp3 a couple years ago and while I want to go back to it from time to time I love the sounds I hear during the run. ( )

I was looking forward to reading this book, but came away a little disappointed. It was good but it didn't wow me. I suspect if I pick up the book at the right time, in the future, I'd like it a lot. ( )
