"This is the best resource on running biomechanics and injury prevention. The corrective exercises have become part of my training routine, improved my performance, and reduced my injuries." Alan Webb, American record holder in the mile "Why does almost every runner get injured? The reason is an amazingly complex mix of anatomy, strength, forces, vectors, and footwear effects. After reading this book and feeling what running really is, you will rediscover and understand its simplicity ... then you can throw the rest of the library away." Dr. Mark Cucuzzella, Natural Running Center "Jay provides an incredibly straightforward and innovative explanation of everything that should happen when you run, how to effectively screen before things go wrong and how to initiate the fundamental exercises that will prevent injury and improve performance. This book is clearly the current front runner in its field and will quickly become essential and required reading for all runners, coaches and physiotherapists."
