I think "The Runner's Handbook" is a great book and very usefull as well as motivational.
and a great buy for less than £7
Do you want running specific books? The 'Non-Runner's Marathon Trainer' by David Whitsett and Forrest Dolgeer is very good.
For non-running specific I would recommend two books by Robin Sieger - "You can Change Your Life" and "Natural Born Winners" - both are very good for increasing self-belief, developing a positive attitude and guiding you to succeed (using whatever your own personal measure is for success).
Either of the Jane Tomlinson books
Touching the Void - Joe Simpson
You wanna feel motivated to run? Check this guy out (hope link works).
It's not about the bike, Lance Armstrong's autobiography
'We might as well win it' Johann Bruynel, Lance Armstrong's friend and cycling mentor/manager.
Neither really running related but very good for motivation.
Doing the Lakeland Trails series this year and have been kept going through it all by reading Feet In The Clouds by Richard Asquith. The definitive book on fell running. One mans journey through the total madness that this sport is, interspersed with the history, psychology and ethos of the sport and tales of the sports giants - Jos Naylor, Bob Graham et all, real sporting heroes if ever there were any.
Inspirational and un put-downable. My life will never be the same.
Got mine from Amazon
I'm reading FITC at the moment.
I got mine from the library though
Riding Through The Storm by Geoff Thomas. It's about how he overcame leukaemia and cycled the Tour de France route within one year of being in remission. He was my hero when I was growing up and his story inspired me to run my first marathon - in April I'll be running my 5th.
