    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.

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

    I liked it because I don't seem to have a lot of time to sit down and read. It probably would have taken me months to finish the print version.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    No favorite. All of the athletes were truly amazing.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    The narration was great. He kept me wanting to hear more. I was sad when the book ended.


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

    I would keep the book title as the tag line. You are an Ironman.


    Any additional comments?

    I would love to have more inspirational "true life" books to choose from. This book was the best I have heard/read in a very long time.
