Vonhof's thoroughness and detailed analysis can help with everything from toenail fungus to an inflamed metatarsal head. Fixing Your Feet includes an exhaustive analysis of blisters, with one chapter devoted to their prevention, another to taping for blisters, and a third to their treatment. Vonhof's blister prevention tips are extremely valuable to almost any runner, regardless of distance or preferred running surface. Vonhof uses easy-to-read lists and advice from accomplished runners, adventure racers, and multi-sport athletes to flesh out his text, giving the discussion a bit of personality and some entertainment value.
