An interesting and fun book. Adding to the market.
Books on LOOOONNG runs are becoming more prevalent in much the same way the Fixx’s book and then Galloway and hundreds more filled the market for running in the 70’s until today .
Powell did the right thing getting input from as many of the current and lifetime luminaries as he did and the result is a pretty complete book..
To suggest a SYLLABUS for a newbie Ultrarunner we would need to know what was read so far BUT
This would be a good one along with a few books by Tim Noakes as well as Scott Jurek’s book, and for fun (but little useful info) Born to Run by McDougall .
Ultimately you still need to get out there and run….
