"Reading 'The Little Red Book of Running' is like having a casual conversation with a wise, gregarious coach--one of those conversations where you sit back, put your feet up and pick his brain on everything from warm-up routines and race nutrition to motivation and even how to schedule all levels of training into real life. It is a veritable crash course in a life's worth of learned running knowledge, from the small tidbits on things like injury prevention and stretching to general philosophies on training and running in general." --Molly Huddle, American record-holder for 5 kilometers

It's written in the easy-to-digest, here's-how-it's-done tone of a coach, running partner and veteran racer rolled into one. . . . It's an ideal bedside companion that will never collect dust." -- --Running Times
