    Meb Keflezighi is all about hope and second chances—starting with his very survival. The child of a small African country ravaged by a brutal war, Meb arrived in America with nothing but the clothes on his back, speaking no English and never having raced a mile. So how did he end up an A student, one of the most celebrated and respected athletes of his generation, and winner of the 2009 New York City Marathon?

    C. Kuni says: "You gotta love Meb! - but..."
    "An Inspiring Story that is not Overly Inspiring"
    Overall

    Meb seems to be a pretty down to Earth guy and it is amazing how he ended up getting out of poverty in Etheopia but was his family really poverty stricken there? I wish he had of filled in more details about how bad or not badly off his family was in Etheopia and a few more details of how his father was able to get the to USA. I don't think his story is that much more extrodinary than any other immigrant coming to North Amercia and getting a job and succeeding at something. He just happened to be a runner who made it because he was talented. Sort of boring at times but also interesting sometimes. Not a stellar book but not a bad listen.
