  1. Love it! It would be great to get additional commentary around each section of the book from Peter Himself. Maybe a writer could record the conversation, summarise and add it as an addendum between each chapter on his views today looking back. It would be great to have for posterity, he will be 80 years old in 2018. Long may he live!

  2. The greatest middle distance athlete ever to pull on a pair of spikes. Talented: yes. Worked hard: yes. WRs on grass and cinders and uncontested. Based on how he ran his first mile WR 3.54.4 in 1962 (last 880 in 1.53.8) and half mile WR (last 220 in 28.2!!) could have run much faster for both distances in his career. But he was primarily a racer – competitive record proves it and in Tokyo was supreme. Nobody better, then or now. Great Book – a lot of learnings within for middle distance runners if they take the time to read it.
