Norrie covers all the biggies about running while circling around two main points. 1) Training is only as good as the recovery that follows and 2) doing less at higher speed is more beneficial than more at slower speed. Though the book is somewhat aimed at Comrades marathon participants, it is excellent for novices and may very well redirect experienced runners. I highly recommend.
