A great addition to a runner's bookshelf: practical self-help from diagnosis to treatment. -- Paula Radcliffe, World Record Holder for Women's Marathon A must have book for runners of all abilities. Any niggle you feel, you can be sure to find help and guidance in this fantastic book. Laura Weightman, 1500m European and Commonwealth medallist This book is very reassuring for all runners with aches and pains, with brilliant tips for self-diagnoses, clear indications for when you need professional help, and most importantly excercises to help you get better and back out running.
