I'm no writer, so to say that Ultra Marathon Man is an inspirational book is a monumental understatement. The beginning of the book is entertaining and enjoyable. As it progresses you get to know the author, and before you know it, you're hooked. The shear endurance of the man is nothing short of amazing. As you listen to the highs and lows of Kardo's running pursuits, the strength he finds from his family, and the beauty of the lives changed through his fund raising efforts, you find yourself drawing strength for your own day to day pursuits. I have found myself pushing harder and stretching farther to reach my goals than I have ever been able to at any other point in my life. If you are looking for some inspiration, this book will do it!
I have always loved O. Henry's stories and the twist at the end, and this is a GREAT one. Sadly, the narration on this is just sad. It is really poor quality work. At times it almost sounds like it's computer generated. Save your money on this one.
