Just finished. Really happy I purchased this book. Not only has this book got me running the most I ever have before, but it answered many of the common questions about a plant based diet, and I've recently cut out animal products.
I also highly recommend buying the physical copy of Rich's new book, "The Plant Power Way".
The book was exactly as expected. Great stories of how alcoholism can sneak up on you, and an even better story about how he became an endurance athlete. He talks a lot about his diet and a bit about his training- but mainly about his life story. I am glad that I made the purchase.
Highly recommend this book to any endurance athlete as well as just anyone. Rich does a great job and it makes you want to eat better and perform at a higher more intense scale.
The most engaging, inspirational and motivating sports/endurance/life book since 'Born to Run'. Wanted to listen to is again from start to finish as soon as I got to the end. Rich Roll is a total legend!
Loved the first half of the book. The story of how he battled his demons and became one of the fittest men. Lost a little steam during the telling of the 5 Iron Man on 5 islands. Good tips in the appendix. love Rich Roll. His Podcast is the BEST.
Very inspiring story. Even better hearing Rich tell the story in his own voice. Looking forward to the cookbook this summer
I really enjoyed this book, I've been a fan of his podcast for years. I avoided reading since I had read books like eat and run but this one was much appreciated.
Listened to the first five chapters on a long drive home today. Put on my running shoes the second I walked in the door and ran 20 miles for the first time ever. So inspirational.
