    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.

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

    Have you listened to any of Rich Roll’s other performances before? No
    How does this one compare? He is the Author and the Narrator ... Does a wonderful job with both. You can tell he is not a professional Narrator but it makes the experience that much more enjoyable! Rich does a terrific job!


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

    A kid pushed around to a man pushing forward!


    Any additional comments?

    This is a great book that will help inspire you if you let it. Rich has a very strong will and story to share. This book is another push for me to go to a full plant based diet! My wife is on board and I am on board so we are making the transition slow but we are making it! Its not just about being a vegan this book is so much more his story is truly worth sharing...from a kid being pushed around to a man pushing forward!

    Story
    (213)

    On the morning of December 22, 2005, New York City firefighter Matt Long was cycling to work when he was struck by and sucked under a 20-ton bus making an illegal turn. The injuries he sustained pushed him within inches of death. Miraculously, after five months in the hospital and more than 40 operations, Matt was able to start his recovery. This book chronicles Matt's road to recovery as he teaches himself to walk again and, a mere three years later, to run in the 2008 New York City Marathon.

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes!
    It is a great book that will help you reach your goals!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Matt Long... Because it is about him.


    Which character – as performed by Matthew Del Negro – was your favorite?

    All of them... Matthew Del Negro is a great Narrator... It is hard to believe he is not the Author.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes... But I think listing to it in multiple sittings is actually a better experience... It lets the story sink in!


    Any additional comments?

    Dont pass this book up!

  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"

    What made the experience of listening to Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen the most enjoyable?

    The story telling is on point and the educational aspect is terrific. The reader is has a wonderful flow and does a great job of putting the books images right in your mind!


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    I have been told several times that I need to read/listen to this book because I have been running barefoot for years… I found the way the author put together the stories and information to be truly terrific! He is able to paint a picture in words so well.


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

    The voice sounds very familiar not sure If I have though… Amazing reading!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book cover to cover was great!


    Any additional comments?

    Keep Running!
