    1. This was good as a reference but there weren't a lot of surprises here. I'd recommend it as an addition to any runner's library but it's not gonna rock your world.The opening chapters that explain how nearly all injuries stem from a minor imbalance being aggravated over thousands or millions of footfalls (one expert likens it to lightly scratching your hand with your nail - it doesn't hurt at first but if you keep doing it for minutes it becomes excruciating) and how to choose shoes and work on [...]


    2. I started running regularly when I was 19 years old, over 30 years ago. In the beginning I ran to lose weight, but I continued to run throughout the years to maintain my weight. After all those years, last year for the first time I suffered a running injury and had to reduce my running drastically (but I didn't stop altogether) to heal. My achilles tendon was hurt. I found out that I wasn't immune to injury, after all. I'm not going to say that if I had read this book beforehand I would not have [...]


    3. I'm not sure this is "the last word in preventing and healing injuries" as claimed in the promo, but it is a useful overview. I'm on the tail end of recovering from IT band syndrome that presented as hip bursitis rather than the more typical knee pain, so I'm looking for ongoing strength training. This included some of the same exercises my PT has given me. On the other hand, the Strengthening chapter (Ch 5) does not do a very thorough job of explaining the importance of strong glutes in avoidin [...]


    4. An average book on running. It does a fairly good job of describing injuries, what to do if you get one (of the few it lists), and how to prevent them. With that being said, there are not a lot of injuries listed in the book. I would suggest reading several other books on running to get a better idea of injuries as a whole. It does a good job of listing nontraditional methods of fixing/preventing injuries.


    5. If you are a novice runner, this is an excellent resource and, perhaps, even required reading. Learn how to get the most out of your running without needlessly breaking yourself or further exacerbating your injuries. She also has some great stretching and strength programs that I'm going to photocopy and keep next to my exercise ball. Anything to fix my stupid hamstring.


    6. Excellent book! It really opened up my eyes to what I've been doing wrong which causes me to get injured in the first place. This book isn't just for injury treatment but it talks heavily on injury prevention or at least serious injuries that can result from ignoring the warning signs. A must read for every runner.


    7. First running book I've read. Consequently, I learned a lot. I thought it was easy to read and understand and the principals taught were good to know! Not much in there about HOW to run well or even HOW to train, mostly just what NOT to do, thought that was kind of annoying. Overall, glad I read it, but it's not all-encompassing by any means so I plan to read more running books.



    8. Not very detailed. Here is a brief synopsis. Small running injuries can worsen if you do not rest properly and address the cause. I just saved you $10.






    9. B+ A great book with a lot of impt information for runners trying to avoid running injuries, prevent them, and deal with injuries.
