Helpful

at a time when I felt burnt out by running, this book has helped me regain the inspiration to get out and run with a new attitude on running, and a deeper purpose.

Substance

If you want to learn about running and meditation this is not the book for you. If you want to hear about the authors ultra marathon experiences then dive in. Not what I was expecting and very disappointing.

more memoir of race experience, less Tao experien!

I found this book to be too heavily about each race, trials and triumphs with occasional reference to Taoist thinking, and experience as it relates to running. The author is really wanting people to become ultra-runners not Taoist runners. I suppose he sees those as connected elements.
