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.

Where does Finding Ultra rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This is a tremendously inspirational book for everyone, particularly those of us staring down middle age...

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

It was the moment he realized that he HAD to change his life.
