KIRKUS REVIEW

For the multitude of scantily clad sprinters who love to read about their current passion, here's another running encyclopedia, and this one's the most detailed yet. Warm-up exercises, stress tests, what to do about soreness (it's still liniment and hot baths), how to run in the dark, psychological benefits (surges of joy and increased serf-esteem), where to find Adidas sneakers wherever you are, stretching exercises and incredibly ugly illustrations, one of a plate of spaghetti (the point being that running makes you lose weight even though you require more carbohydrates for energy). Everything but dash.
