Foot pain and injuries can thwart even the most experienced athletes. Foot expert John Vonhof discredits the conventional wisdom of "no pain, no gain," teaching instead how the interplay of anatomy, biomechanics, and footwear can lead to happy or hurting feet. With a focus on individual and team care, this fifth edition covers everything that an active person needs for immediate and long-term foot care solutions. Vonhof's advice comes not only from his own experience but also from many foot experts and endurance athletes. He offers numerous solutions for each problem, as there is no one best solution -- different treatments work for different feet. This comprehensive resource covers footwear basics, prevention, and treatments along with clear diagrams, photos, and charts that demonstrate techniques and solutions. If it can happen to a foot, it's covered in this book.

This book seems to be geared toward the ultra-runner, rather than the casual ten-k or half-marathon runner that I am, so it did not hold much interest for me.

i know this sounds awfully boring, but if you are a runner or hiker this book has invaluable advice and extensive methods for keeping your feet healthy and happy.
easy to read, too!
