Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Steven Lazen | 2/13/2014

    " Not a bad ultra running book there are just better ones out there like born to run and Scott jurek's book. As an ultra-runner myself it did make me want to work harder though! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Rosemary | 2/10/2014

    " I loved reading about the ridiculously long runs that the author does. He has motivated me to take running a bit more seriously, but I am definitely not going to go for 50-200 mile runs like he does. He kindof annoyed me when he stated that he does not run for the fame of running, and that he does it all for himself - if that was true, why did he write a book? Overall though, it was quick read about a guy with a great passion for running. "

    " This guy is out of his mind -- running 50 - 100 miles in a day!!! He's a bit cocky, but the book is written lightly and his feats of strength are amazing. "
