    Story
    (697)

    An incredible but true account of achieving one of the most awe-inspiring midlife physical transformations ever

    In October 2006, the night before he was to turn forty, Rich experienced a chilling glimpse of his future. Nearly fifty pounds overweight and unable to climb the stairs without stopping, he saw where his sedentary lifestyle was taking him. Most of us look the other way when granted such a moment of clarity, but not Rich.

    J. Camara says: "Insightful conquering life's challenges"
    "Hands Down, My favorite Audio book !"

    Story
    Where does Finding Ultra rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to this book, time and time again. It entertains me,It motivates me and it teaches me. Rich captivates the audience by portraying his life, in its highest and darkest moments. What did it for me was his honesty in sharing his information and insights from his unique perspective. Don't hesitate for a second, in buying this book. It has positively changed my outlook on, sports, endurance and health forever.


    What other book might you compare Finding Ultra to and why?

    Born to run, and Eat and run, they share similar characteristics as this novel, however out of the 3 Finding Ultra is by far my favourite


    What about Rich Roll’s performance did you like?

    Rich, acts out in different voices to better portray the characters in his story. Even Rich's colloquialisms allow the audience to really get a feel of who he is. After reading the book, I felt as If I knew Rich, despite never meeting him in my life.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    This book has released my ignorance of the foods I eat, after reading this I realized how many processed junk food I actually consume. Although I am not vegan, I take Rich's underlying principals to better my current diet.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is incredibly: powerful, entertaining and informative. So if you want to be swept off your feet and be taken on a journey, plug it in and read it !
