The following are just a few book reviews for The Complete Guide To Running as it was released just prior to this new website preparation.

“The Complete Guide to Running is absolutely terrific, contents superb and the colour coded sections unique. It should be a big seller. I’m very honoured to be a contributor.”
- Payton Jordan, 1968 U.S.A. Olympic head track and field coach. See Champions for Life by Scott and Ward for the story of Payton and his great athletes.


“It looks wonderful: high quality printing, and the colour coded pages for the different chapters. I’ve never read a book with so much information in a tight bundle. It certainly is true, this is The Complete Guide To Running.”
- Helly Visser, master distance runner,
she has numerous Canadian records and in 2005 a world record for 3000m


“The first edition was a gem for guiding and assisting our coaching and running programs. This new book has the gem cut and polished to perfection. Creative ideas, pragmatic research, personal knowledge, wisdom, love, logical layout, colours, weight and quality.”
- Roger Davies, coach and master middle distance runner
Canadian record holder for age group 65-69 mile


“The Complete Guide to Running is exactly that—a guide for any runner from young to master, from beginner to champion, from sprinter to marathoner. I’ve used Earl’s suggestions in working with elementary school runners as a teacher/coach and in my training as a masters sprinter (100, 200 and 400 metres) Especially valuable to many will be will be the information on dynamic warm-up and cross training, using activities such as deep water running, plyometrics, weight training, trampoline, etc. I also appreciate the blend of information from extensive research and Earl’s personal experience.”
- Karla Del Grande, master sprinter
she has many Canadian records and a world record as of 2004



The following are some of the book reviews for the 1st edition book. These are still applicable since the 2nd edition book is an updated 1st edition.

"All health enthusiasts, coaches, athletic trainers, parents of young athletes, and especially runners from beginner to elite will benefit from this in-depth book. The special emphasis on nutrition, mental training and inspiration (in addition to the physical training) will be of interest to athletes of all ages.
     Techniques in this book can make you faster, stronger, more flexible, and overall a healthier athlete to make you conquer your inner-self, to give you the "winning edge", and to make you a champion. With body, mind, and spirit each fully used and all in harmony, the body can be stretched to higher and sometimes surprising performance. This book will do just that while you engage in the serious play of athletic excellence.
     I know of no other body of work on this subject that is so inclusive and practical. It is absolutely outstanding."
