- A Life Spent Running from Madness
- By: Suzy Favor Hamilton
- Narrated by: Suzy Favor Hamilton, Nan McNamara
- Length: 8 hrs and 2 mins
The former middle-distance Olympic runner and high-end escort speaks out for the first time about her battle with mental illness and how mania controlled and compelled her in competition but also in life. This is a heartbreakingly honest yet hopeful memoir reminiscent of Manic, Electroboy, and An Unquiet Mind.
Accurate Explanation of Bi-Polar Disorder
- By Julia on 08-03-17
Being from Wisconsin and knowing of Suzy over the years with her running ability and then about her being an escort it intrigued me to read/listen to this book to see why. Sad to find out that all along she had bipolar disease and I am sure that is why she never went anywhere in the Olympics...such as shame. Hope she can help a lot of people with her story. Couldn't turn the book off wanted to keep listening to see what was next. A must read book or listen.
