Author focuses on what seem to me to be outdated ideas of carb-loading, intensity runs, and high-tech footware. I personally find "primal endurance" thinking much more compelling.

The book is a good read and mainly has the Do's and Don'ts in preparation for a Marathon. It does cover all areas needed to finish a marathon up to 26 miles.
But, when I wonder .. I couldn't think of any other way an author could have suggested better. It would have been more helpful if there was more focus on the nutrition aspect of the preparation.
Narrator was a bit fast paced for me. I had to read it at 0.80x speed.
