Review quote

"When most people see the name Jack Daniels, they picture a whiskey bottle. But runners will think about the renowned coach and exercise physiologist. At 81, Daniels has had a bigger influence on training-for-running than anyone. Indeed, he might be considered the Albert Einstein of the sport. His 1998 book, Daniels' Running Formula, unlocked the mystery of appropriate training paces for runners of all abilities. His philosophy was simple: Do the minimum amount of work for the maximum payoff."

Runner's World

"In one way or another, today's serious runners abide by training principles rooted in Jack Daniels' research and philosophy and outlined in his famous book, Daniels' Running Formula."
