  • You Are an Ironman: How Six Weekend Warriors Chased Their Dream of Finishing the World's Toughest Triathlon

    Story
    (208)

    As he did so masterfully in his New York Times best seller The Gatekeepers, Jacques Steinberg creates a compelling portrait of people obsessed with reaching a life-defining goal. In this instance, the target is an Ironman triathlon---a 2.4-mile open-water swim followed by a 112-mile bike ride, then finally a 26-mile marathon run, all of which must be completed in no more than seventeen hours. Steinberg focuses not on the professional who live off the prize money and sponsorships, but on a handful of triathletes who regard the sport as a hobby.

    Would you consider the audio edition of You Are an Ironman to be better than the print version?

    I only listened to it


    What other book might you compare You Are an Ironman to and why?

    "here to win" by Chris MacCormack. Both are about triathlons one from a professionals view and the other from a weekend worrier. both are great reads


    Have you listened to any of Kirby Heyborne’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    no


    Any additional comments?

    great to listen while on the bike training for my triathlon.

    Story
    (10678)

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan ("the devil") and placed a bounty on his head.
