  • Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness

    • UNABRIDGED (8 hrs and 24 mins)
    • By Scott Jurek, Steve Friedman
    • Narrated By Quincy Dunn-Baker

    Story
    (601)

    A dominant force in the sport of ultrarunning, Scott Jurek is a seven-time winner of the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run and a two-time winner of the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon through Death Valley. Eat & Run offers an inspirational account of Jurek’s life as a runner and vegan. Regaling listeners with jaw-dropping tales of endurance, Jurek also delivers sound science and practical advice—as well as his favorite plant-based recipes.

    Story
    If you could sum up Eat and Run in three words, what would they be?

    Great context and in-depth look at one of the stars of Born to Run. Very much enjoyed the nutritional insights.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Quincy Dunn-Baker?

    Someone who wasn't so abrasive in his reading style. Sometimes I felt like the reader made Scott seem like an angry guy with a big chip on his shoulder...very different from the spiritual vegan discussions at the end of each chapter. It was a little jarring.

    Spoken simply, with his hallmark warmth, humor, and compassion, here is Eckhart's full presentation of a beautiful way to live.

    Story
    Would you try another book from Eckhart Tolle and/or Eckhart Tolle?

    This was the worst audio book that I have ever purchased. I would never purchase another book narrated by Tolle himself.


    What could Eckhart Tolle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Pretend he was actually a person rather than a zombie.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His narration style was so appallingly slow and incoherent that I could not get through it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Stick to the written text, you'll be better off reading it out loud to yourself.
