I am not even a runner and thoroughly enjoyed this book. The research that this author did with the tribe from Mexico was exemplary. Fascinating information on how the running shoe industry has pulled the wool over consumers worldwide by promoting running shoes that actually cause more injuries than they prevent. Get this book, you'll love it.
The writing is strange, it wanders and Salinger's story is told from many other person's who knew him points of view. It is terribly written and my wife and I turned it off in the car after only 1 hour of listening. I just want a credit back on this one.
This book is awesome. The fact the "Ace" (Adam Carolla) reads it himself makes it even better. I laughed so many times while listening to this book that I had to stop it just to catch my breath on a few ocassions. Kudos to Adam for writing this and pointing out the little things in life that are both irritating and funny. If you like witty and ocassionally offensive sarcasm, you would be a fool not to buy this book. Thanks for reading this Adam. No other reader could have made it as good as you did.
I wish Bill Bryson had a thousand books I could read. I've read every single one so far and always come away with new and interesting facts through his uniquely funny stories. I am also a big fan of him reading his own material. Only Bryson can convey the unique viewpoints the way they way intended to write them. Buying this book is a no brainer. Get it. You'll love it. If you don't, you've lost your sense of humour about life and need therapy.
