Publisher's Summary

When life turns up the heat, you have two choices. You can bend and break, or you can step boldly into the furnace and let your soul catch fire.

Into The Furnace explores the inner workings of bravery, hope, and passion. These themes are framed against the backdrop of the Badwater Ultramarathon - a 135-mile race across the hottest place on the planet, Death Valley. Cory Reese has walked into the furnace. He has faced adversity, both in running and in life. His book captures the essence of what it means to suffer, what it means to persevere, and ultimately, what it means to create a life of clarity and purpose.

Absolutely loved it

Cory is so accessible to me and the book was just terrific. It was simply a beautiful and real presentation of his experience and it inspired me on a personal level. I'll always remember that I was listening to this book when I signed up for my own first ultramarathon.

Great story, well told

Interspersed with historical references as well as heartfelt personal tales, this audiobook is about not just one person’s Badwater race, but many people’s struggles through the hottest place on Earth. He describes intimate details of the mental fortitude and physical strain required to do this race.

I only wish he had hired a professional to read it. The halting rhythms in his rendering lack flow and I found them quite distracting.

Awesome!!!<br />

I love this book so much! Cory personal stories and his antidotes from Badwater veterans are truly inspirational. Cory Reese continues to amaze me with his strength, perseverance and wit. I love that he read his book himself, which always makes for a better performance. I highly recommend this book!
