    1. A repackaging of things the author has written about in previous books. If you're coming at Phil Maffetone afresh and want the lowdown on his "Maffetone Method", pick up The Big Book of Endurance Training and Racing instead of this one.

    2. How to get faster and run injury free from the iconoclastic coach and health expert. Maffetone continues to preach deceptively simple advice without trying to sell you anything. Learn more about him in Christopher McDougall's (Born to Run) latest book, Natural Born Heroes.

    3. Fascinating read. Unconventional, well argued. Fascinating read. Unconventional, well argued. As a Berliner, I can't wait for the million dollar race to come to town.
