Great book, inpowerment and motivational. Show how small are our regular problems and how we can achieve greatness if we really want and chase, focus and dedicate ourselves to achieve it.
Say something about yourself!
Like many books about living in New York City, the author treats absolutely everything that happens in a normal person's life like it is amazing just because it happened in New York. If the same events were told of a person living in Iowa, it would be called boring.
Truly inspirational. If you didn't feel like you had to go and achieve something after listening to this well then you are not normal. Feeling all the POSI vibes from Matthew. ++
Matthew set himself a goal and no matter what he found a way to achieve it. Living the true YOLO lifestyle
Loved the audio so much if it was in print I would have read the book through the night! Well put together and inspiring.
Matt Long and all his family and buddies!
Rough sexy voice!
Lots of insights, importance of family and friends! Reminds me how much I love running! Most interesting part for me as a South African woman living in Maputo it was so interesting learning re NY! Only thing missing was - did he meet girl of his dreams yet?
Just love books.
The narration was good, the story incredible!
I like the fact that Mathew Long didn't cover the fact that at times he had a bad attitude about the situation he found himself in but he eventually found his way. We are not all positive thinkers all of the time as the experts like to tell us to be.
I cried at the marathon. What an achievement.
Excellent book and so inspiring. So great to listen to while out for a bike ride or a run.
Yes, the blackest points in his life and how he managed to crawl back up and keep trying.
This book is very inspiring.
I know of his family and have spent time with his father, This book kept me wanting to listen and run more. I enjoyed the narrators take on his accent and found it endearing. His story is truelly awe inspiring. The ups and downs paint a great picture.
The book was emotional at times, but it doesn't stick to a low point for any length of time.
Great read for anyone who likes to be inspired, who needs to be reminded of how blessed they are. Would be good for a younger person too.
This is an incredible story about the power of the human spirit and our ability to overcome all obstacles
This book made me want to run and run and run as hard as I can
Yes - I loved the way the story unfolds of past and present stories
Nothing - He sounded just like a guy from NYC
Listen to this even if you have no interest in running
Pushed beyond all reasonable limits this man survived and thrived when others would have quit.
Matt because of the strength he showed. Yes he had his self-pity moments, but who wouldn't in his situation.
He's an athlete with a character of fun!
The injuries he sustained and survived! Oh my gosh!!!
When someone is feeling weak, share this book.
