    Story
    (805)

    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    "He is a Miracle"

    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Finding Ultra to be better than the print version?

    I think the print version would be equally good. One might move through some spots a little quicker


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Finding Ultra?

    The trip through the addiction.


    What does Rich Roll bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He does a great job with the expression. You do get to know the partners.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    It is a miracle


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great guide through the addictive state and back to health. Rich shows his absolute focus along with a passion and capacity for how and why in becoming the Ultra. He really takes you through what it is like to hit a bottom and find yourself on the journey back.
