" Great read! The track and field historical data is very well documented. I'm not a sprinter but I will benefit greatly from the strength and conditioning techniques. The tables and templates in the training and planning section are great tools that are easy to follow. The nutrition section correlates well with the goal of performance improvement. Very well thought out, catering not only to athletes but also to those of us who are working on fitness and health. "

" Great knowledge and passion ooze from the pages, turning what could easily be a routine and bland training advice manual into something rather more special. Indeed the book is great for both beginners and more experienced athletes. People from other sports who want to improve their speed will also profit from reading it and following its many nuggets of advice. "
