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.
Really great story. Impressed and inspired by what Rich was able to do after 40! Great motivation for me.
Love that the author chose to read his own book. Really adds to the authenticity. Shows how invested and passionate he is in his own book and story.
However Richs voice sometimes lack energy and pep which makes it tough to listen to while running. I need a little more get up and go. Many times I find myself needing to give myself a mental kick in the butt to run faster after I noticed I've been lulled into dragging my feet and running far too slowly.
But still Rich has my respect. Looking forward to see what lies ahead of him.
Rich shows how anyone can go from an overweight middle aged couch potato to tone of the fittest men on earth by taking control of your health and shunning the standard American diet.
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
