Rich's story is both riveting and inspiring. He does a terrific job in narrating the book. My only issues with it were the diet part (preachy) and the exhausting details of his races. But all told, this was an excellent book.
great story, intresting character and motivational. I read this and 3 years on i have lost 50lbs and went from barely being able to walk up a flight of stairs to running ultimate marothons! thank you Rich Roll!
This book catapulted my love for plant based nutrition into another stratosphere. The author is engaging and his story is captivating. I would definitely give it a read if you are looking for inspiration in any area of life!
This book came along at a perfect time for me and I can't think the author enough. More than just about culture marathon training, inspiration for anyone, especially those approaching or in their 40s. It's inspired me to be healthier go for more and definitely to take on my health
Interesting insight into the life of an alcoholic, along with the journey that lead him to sobriety. Equally impressive was the fitness/motivation aspect of the story. Bottom line within a few days of being into this book I found myself making significant lifestyle changes.....
Rich has whiney voice. Kept on listening hoping he would stop whining and it would get better. Started off as a whine in the preface and kept right on whining. Why so many people think this is good is bewildering. The 1 good point I saw, exercise at Z2 (I read Sally Edwards probably around 1982 as her hr2) Mercola as diet guru? He must be kidding. Don't bother reading this as many better around. Probably good advertisement for his supplements though.
Yes, to be motivated by the dedication and drive Rich and his friend Jason had in this quest and to support each other.
The narration was extremely s.l.o.w.... I played most of the book at 1.5 to 2x the speed. Rich speaks very slowly and personally 1.5 sounded like a more motivated pace. The play time is no where near the 9 hours.
This was one of the best sports psychology books I have ever read/listened to! What an amazing story of emotional, mental, and physical fitness. Awesome job Rich you are a true American Badass!
Web Application Developer, Husband, Father, trying to live a life that will make my corner of the world a little brighter and happier.
I enjoyed the story and picked up several nuggets of information that will benefit my health and improve my training. Great book.
