According to Running Encyclopedia by Richard Benyo and Joe Henderson, "Wilt invented the modern running book. In 1964, he published an updated compilation of the best international knowledge, Run, Run, Run. It has contributions from Vladimir Kuts (the USSR's 1956 Olympic 5,000m and 10,000m gold medalist), Arthur Lydiard (the coach behind six New Zealand Olympic medals, 1960 and 1964) and other global luminaries. He eventually published eight significant books, including groundbreakers like International Track & Field Coaching Encyclopedia, Championship Track & Field for Women and Motivation and Coaching Psychology. And if Edelen had only heeded Wilt's advice to take more rest and focus on the Olympics, we might even now be dating marathon history from a Wilt-inspired American medal in 1964.

Yes, one can see it is dated by the copyright but upon receipt, it really has a lot of irrelevant information. In my opinion, the information in the book is excellent and a great resource, but the book probably spends too much space talking about past runners and less important topics. What is really good though is that it overviews a lot of runner-specific terminology.

I'm not a die hard runner and I sure don't know everything about running. So I have questions. This book has been such an EASY reference when a questions pop up. I keep it next to my running log and probably refer to it at least 2 times a week. It gets a big thumbs up from me.
