similar to " finding ultra ", (minus the alcoholism part in the middle of finding ultra)
really loved it,
Thanks for sharing it with us Scott
I feel like this book is a bit like Scott himself. Very focused, very type-A. It was interesting but I felt like something was left out. I guess I was spoiled by reading Born to Run immediately prior. Overall, great information, and Scott has amazing stories to tell.... it just wasn't a super entertaining read. Love the recipes though! Nom nom.
Scott's journey was incredibly interesting.
Quincy's voice is great.
A worthwhile listen!
Favorite part was when Scott diverts from the narrative to give solid advice to runners.
Great life lessons, even if your not a runner. Enjoyed Scott's end of chapter summaries.
One of Scott's early trail runs when he realizes he's pretty darn good at trail running!
Born to Run for the personal connection between the two books.
condescending, boring un enjoyable
Provide a PDF with recipes please!
really liked it. not a ton of running advice, but enough to give you some information. I thought it did a very good job of getting you into the head of an ultra runner. as a new dad I found the back story of Scott and his dad useful in some of my parenting decisions.

I had read this book a while back and throughly enjoyed it. Scott writing comes off as soft and genuine, and it was inspiring to read.
The narrator however takes on a very aggressive and angry tone. As if it's Scott Jurek against the world. This wasn't what I had grasped from reading the book, and I must confess that it was so difficult to listen to the arrogance being portrayed that I had to stop listening.
I couldn't bring myself to give this a one star review because I genuinely enjoyed reading the book.
