Review: Galloway's Marathon FAQ: Over 100 of the Most Frequently Asked Questions

User Review  - Elizabeth - Goodreads

Perhaps the world's shortest book. Although the advice was good, it was repeated multiple times. I didn't appreciate that the author kept referring us to his other books, and again, multiple times. The takeaways: start slow and walk often. Read full review
