FROM THE BACK COVER:
“Dr. Maffetone shares his lifetime of experience in helping athletes of all abilities to become better.”
— Dr. Tim Noakes, author of Lore of Running
Read Dr. Noakes Afterword here
"If you don't read Phil Maffetone, you're turning your back on one of the most powerfully probing minds in endurance sports. The brilliance of Maffetone's work is his re-discovery of the ancient understanding that the human engine doesn't need to be fueled on suffering, and that pain is only the penalty you pay for backburnering your brain. The best advice you could give any athlete, no matter what their level, is to read Maffetone and start over."
— Christopher McDougall, author of Born to Run.

Q: How can we get Dr. Phil's coaching and consultation?
A: Unfortunately, I do very little consulting these days -- I'm busy with writing fitness and health material, lecturing, writing music, tending to my year-round garden and working out. However, my friend and colleague Mark Allen does online coaching and I highly recommend him. Click on his photo below or go to MarkAllenOnline.com.
