  • Running for My Life: One Lost Boy's Journey from the Killing Fields of Sudan to the Olympic Games

    Running for My Life is not a story about Africa or track and field athletics. It is about outrunning the devil and achieving the impossible: faith, diligence, and the desire to give back. It is the American dream come true and a reminder that saving one can help to save thousands more. Lopez Lomong chronicles his inspiring ascent from a barefoot lost boy of the Sudanese Civil War to a Nike sponsored athlete on the US Olympic Team. Though most of us fall somewhere between the catastrophic lows and dizzying highs of Lomong's incredible life, every reader will find in his story the human spark to pursue dreams that might seem unthinkable.

    Story

    Lopez Lomong's story was inspirational, captivating, and encouraging for everyone. It reminds us all that no matter what hardship we may endure that God is always there, always watching over us, always providing exactly what we need when we need it and He can carry us beyond where we ever dreamed we could go.

  • The Secret Race: Inside the Hidden World of the Tour de France: Doping, Cover-ups, and Winning at All Costs

    Story

    Here is an explosive book that takes us, for the first time, deep inside a shadowy, fascinating, and surreal world of unscrupulous doctors, anything-goes team directors, and athletes so relentlessly driven to succeed that they would do anything—and take any risk, physical, mental, or moral—to gain the edge they needed to win. The Secret Race is a riveting, courageous act of witness from a man who is as determined to reveal the hard truth about his sport as he once was to win the Tour de France.

    Story

    I was hesitant to buy the book since I saw Hamilton's interview on 60 minutes and dismissed him as a liar. I wanted to believe that Armstrong was clean, especially after reading his books. Armstrong was my hero. I know have a new hero. Tyler Hamilton's courage to open up about his doping is one of the most courageous acts I have known. To face his sins and break from of them takes a strength that few men(or women) can truly claim. Since listening to his book, I have found a new courage to do what is right no matter what the consequence. I only hope I can follow through the way he did. Thank you Tyler. I haven't lost a hero. I gained a better one.

    Would you listen to Delivering Happiness again? Why?

    Wow! Out of about 80 audiobooks I've listened too, Delivering Happiness was my favorite. Tony Hsieh's story was great, his message on happiness was great, and the Zappos story was also great. The audio was well-narrated by the author himself, which is always a plus. Also, the audiobook was unique in that, the other players in the Zappos story were acutally narrating their own stories, rather than a generic narrator. Loved every minute, especially the conclusion interview. I wish it never ended!

    Karnazes reveals the mind-boggling adventures of his nonstop treks through the hell of Death Valley, the incomprehensible frigidity of the South Pole, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains and canyons of the Sierra Nevada.

    This has been one of the best books I've listened too. Now that I finished it, I'm starting to run and even thinking about training for a marathon. I loved his tips on every chapter. I hope his most recent book ends up on audible soon.
