Reviews - What do customers think about Running for Dummies?

An informative find  Nov 29, 2007
Back when I was in high school, Florence Griffith-Joyner was a huge inspiration for me. Since I was also a sprinter on the track team, that makes sense. After high school, I fell out of the habits I had followed and eventually abandoned them. Now I am older, and wiser, and I would like to get back into the walking/jogging routine. This is an EXCELLENT book to use as a refresher or as a starter. Flo-Jo has really wonderful tips and leads you every step of the way. No matter what fitness level you are at, this is a must if you are considering walking/jogging and/or running.
The Basic Running Book  May 15, 2007
At first I bought this book for my research project for my English class. I chose running as my topic and eventually this book helped me much.
I am personally a noob at running but just think to start it. After reading this book, I know many things i didn't.
I also read many other running book. They are somewhat not easy to be understood, unlike this book. Though running for dummies gives just general explanation, it's simple and easy to understand, especially for the amateur runners.
A good book if you never ran  Feb 3, 2007
I found this book extremely helpful when I first started exercising. If you have never run before, I believe you will find it helpful. It is a novice book, but we all have to start somewhere!
Good overall, especially for Flo-Jo fans  Aug 17, 2006
This is a great buy if you are a Flo Jo fan.

For everybody else, this is a typical dummies book, it covers all the major areas of a subject, but it by no means comprehensive or in-depth. As with most dummies book, I recommend them for those looking for a quick introduction/reference to a topic.
An excellent book for novice and intermediate  Sep 25, 2000
I feel that this book is full of useful information. Once I picked up the book i didn't set it down. It easy easy to understand and it reminds us intermediate runners about form, nutrition, and staying excited running. This book also has spots for new vocabulary, tips, warnings, and Flo-Jo's encouragement for new runners. This is an excellent book especially for the novice runner.
