One thing I did appreciate was the sections on foot anatomy and physiology, the nervous system in the foot and the balance issues that arise. Overall, there are better books out there.
As many of these books, there are a few repetitions and it could be a tad slimer, BUT, what a research!! All the statements are backed-up with research and examples. Having read "Chi Running" a few years back I knew what to expect, but this is way beyond my expectations and wonderful.
The practical lessons / exercises on how to swicth to natural running clear and useful.
Even if you do not switch to natural running position after reading this book, you will understand what is happening with body and morphology.
The content is accessible to anyone who cares to think a little about running.
It is a must have for all runners and most athletes.
Well worth the price.
I have personally re-wired my mind-body connection to run as a mid-foot/fore-foot striker that I now find running as a heel-striker totally unnatural. The techniques and drills in this book work, and I believe them to be more intuitive to learn than other methods.
