I was in two minds about whether this sort of book was suited to audio but decided to give it a try (so easy when you know it can be returned if necessary!). I really enjoyed listening to it, obviously some parts were a bit boring to listen to because they really needed to be read (like statistics and training programs). I listened when I was walking home after a run or when I was on the treadmill. I learnt loads about all aspects of running, nutrition etc and have even bought a paperback copy to compliment the audio one. I doubt if I'd of read the whole paperback copy - just used it for reference so I'm pleased I got the audio version first. It was well read and (in most parts) easy to listen too.

As someone who has only recently taken up running, I found this an excellent guide through my early stages. It's one I'll keep going back to.
