I've listened to most of Rich Roll's podcasts, so it was great to hear his familiar voice reading his own book. I really appreciate writers who have the guts to read their own book, and in this case it makes the story much more personal and involving.
Well worth the listen!
Hard to say more than the other reviews. This book changed my view of running, and opened up a new world of ultra running that I never knew existed. Great read for anyone wanting to be inspired to put on those running shoes (or take them off as the case may be ;)
I loved the way this book was read, the subtle accents, and the conversational style made it feel like Mitnick was talking to you over the phone :P oh and the occasional *relevant* swearing is just hilarious. The storyline is captivating (By the end I could hardly put it down). One of my fav audible books of all time.
Enthralling Epic Escapism
I was hooked from the first word. It was great to have a different reader for each character, but at some points they seemed to switch the narrator for a character which totally changed the effect of the story - the voice didn't match up with the character you had created in your minds eye. Disappointing, but the overall story was still brilliant. Thoroughly recommended.
As others have said... Watch the TED video - its a great concept but can be told in 10 min more effectively. I couldn't get through all 7 hours of it.
