The Competitive Runners Handbook (A Penguin handbook)

The Competitive Runners Handbook - Bob Glover, Pete Schuder An excellent book for 'everything you ever wanted to know about running'. As a runner who is a novice and wants to build speed, Glover manages to motivate without causing me too much despair over things I can't control (ie. those pesky things called genetics). At a minimum you get a great technical description of tempo runs, stride and intervals and can then talk the lingo like a pro. I see that this will be a classic handbook and can never go out of fashion.
