The first book is Advanced Marathoning, by Pete Pfitzinger and Scott Douglas. The title might scare you off, but this book is not reserved just for fast or excessively experienced runners. It is designed for those who would like a solid and detailed plan to help them run their fastest marathon. A friend recommended this book to me, and the Amazon feedback echo's his high praise. As far as marathon training goes, this is suppose to be one of the best available.
The second book which also gets great feedback is The Complete Book of Running for Women: Everything You Need to Know About Training, Nutrition, Injury Prevention and Much More, by Claire Kowalchik. If the title is any indication, this book is long (only kidding). I do not know as much about this book, but it is supposed to be an outstanding resource. 39 customer reviews give it an average of a 5-star rating.
One last book which I honestly know nothing about is The Non-Runners Marathon Trainer, by David A. Whitsett, Tanjala Jo Kole, anf Forrest A Dolgener. So why did I put this on the list? If you are like me you really enjoy running, and probably have someone you would like to encourage to do the same. This book is a great tool to help get a friend off the couch and on the roads. It has more reviews then any other marathon book I looked up, and still rates 5-stars.
