Discusses not only the physical benefits of running, but its psychological benefits as well: increasing self-esteem, acquiring a "high" from running, and being able to cope better with pressure and tension. Yep, it still sells.

Review: The Complete Book of Running

User Review  - Joe Savage - Goodreads

Read this some while ago. Was helpful then but now there a great wealth of running literature is available. Sadly James Fixx died on the road and this was apparently due to heart disease. Much in his story should have raised red flags. Read full review

This book is informative, albeit dated, and a solid read for anyone interested in starting to run. Read full review
