    "very focused book but not a lot of personality"

    I feel like this book is a bit like Scott himself. Very focused, very type-A. It was interesting but I felt like something was left out. I guess I was spoiled by reading Born to Run immediately prior. Overall, great information, and Scott has amazing stories to tell.... it just wasn't a super entertaining read. Love the recipes though! Nom nom.

    "Listened while on several runs"

    Scott's journey was incredibly interesting.
    Quincy's voice is great.
    A worthwhile listen!

    Favorite part was when Scott diverts from the narrative to give solid advice to runners.

    "Loved it!"
    Would you listen to Eat and Run again? Why?

    Great life lessons, even if your not a runner. Enjoyed Scott's end of chapter summaries.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Eat and Run?

    One of Scott's early trail runs when he realizes he's pretty darn good at trail running!

    "Couldn't get through it"

    Jurek is admirable, but the (audio)book was a slog. I gave up well before finishing the book.

    "good book"

    really liked it. not a ton of running advice, but enough to give you some information. I thought it did a very good job of getting you into the head of an ultra runner. as a new dad I found the back story of Scott and his dad useful in some of my parenting decisions.

    "Narrator poorly represents a good book"

    I had read this book a while back and throughly enjoyed it. Scott writing comes off as soft and genuine, and it was inspiring to read.

    The narrator however takes on a very aggressive and angry tone. As if it's Scott Jurek against the world. This wasn't what I had grasped from reading the book, and I must confess that it was so difficult to listen to the arrogance being portrayed that I had to stop listening.

    I couldn't bring myself to give this a one star review because I genuinely enjoyed reading the book.
