"Karnazes' book is intriguing." (Publishers Weekly)
"Charming and surprisingly quirky, providing the perfect escapist fantasy for couch potatoes and weekend warriors alike." (Kirkus Reviews)
really enjoyed this. Several reviews talked about how "self agrandizing" it os with his stories. Well its a book written by the guy that has done some amazing feats of human endurance, so I don't know what they expected. I enjoyedthe stories and his motivation behind them. This isn't a how to book, its one guys stories. I found it very motivating and enjoyable
I couldn't stop listening because of the way he told the story. Sure, he may sound a little arrogant at times, but that doesn't take away from the story at all. Highly recommended for any endurance athlete or somebody who likes hearing good stories.
Loved this story!! Had heard him speak on a podcast and find him very humble and down to earth. Loved hearing his share his story of his running journey. So inspirational!!
I have not read the print version, so I cannot say.
Dean, as this book is about him. His wife comes in close 2nd!
Both, laughed at the "projectile vomit". Cried at Dean finishing the 200 mile run for a little girl.
Great story, makes me want to run more.Only issue I had was with the long breaks between chapters.
