  • Can't Swim, Can't Ride, Can't Run: From Common Man to Ironman

    This book is both a lesson in true grit and determination, but its goal is one that is attainable. Andy isn't a sporting superstar, he holds down a nine-to-five job and all the pressures that go with it; he isn’t blessed with speed and talent; there are no multi-million pound sponsorship deals; yet this remarkable "common man" is inspiring in a way that some of today’s sporting superstars have forgotten how to be.

    Any additional comments?

    I am an amateur and avid triathlete myself so I thought this book might be tailor made for myself. However, the author of the book was not a down-to-earth man. The book is full of unnecessary exaggerating and boring descriptions, and excuses when the author - an avid triathlete - failed.
    The book contained only very few advices for an amateur triathlete.
    Narration was no good either.
    If you are a beginning or just amateur triathlete I'd suggest to listen or read Iron War or I'm here to Win by Chris McCormack.

    A dominant force in the sport of ultrarunning, Scott Jurek is a seven-time winner of the 100-mile Western States Endurance Run and a two-time winner of the 135-mile Badwater Ultramarathon through Death Valley. Eat & Run offers an inspirational account of Jurek’s life as a runner and vegan. Regaling listeners with jaw-dropping tales of endurance, Jurek also delivers sound science and practical advice—as well as his favorite plant-based recipes.

    What did you love best about Eat and Run?

    An honest and revealing confession of one of the greatest athletes ever lived. I am an avid triathlete and this book was maybe the best sport's book I have read.
