50/50 audiobook cover art

Missed the mark

3 out of 5 stars

Reviewed: 03-14-09

As a runner, I was looking forward to listening to this book, but ended up quite disappointed. While running 50 marathons in 50 days is one heck of an accomplishment, Dean's narration comes accross as self promoting and at times even condesending. Also, he seems like he is almost bored with the narration and would rather be doing something else than telling his story. I had a couple of cases where I was out on a run listening to this book and ended up switching to music which is something I rarely do with many of the running podcasts I regularly listen to. This is a case where I think reading the book would have been better than listening.
