2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By C. Norgate on 19 Mar. 2013
Format: Paperback
As an occasional ultra runner, this book didn't really do it for me. I was expecting a book a bit like Dean Karnazes' Ultra Marathon Man (an excellent read, by the way) with lots of tips, as well as the author's experiences. It got a bit monotonous, a bit like:
Chapter 3: XXXX race in 2009
Chapter 4: XXXX race in 2010
Chapter 5: XXXX race in 2011
So a large part of the book is basically just the author's experience of how he ran the same race in different years, different conditions, etc.. Not really much about lessons he learnt in the process.
So it was an ok read, but not particularly riveting. Bit like a race journal, really, nothing more.

Inspirational! A great book! The massive highs and the painful lows, the view around every corner, the next checkpoint, the finish line, the support and supporters, team mates and family, the company of other runners etc.. Andy has said it all, each moment a fantastic memorie, this book certainly made be smile, feel the pain, laugh and dream a bit more, Hey! nothing will happen unless we dream it 1st and my dreams are starting to scare me.

Got to respect the man and his achievements, but the book lacks characterisation. There is a loose collection of notes barely strung together with no apparent theme. For a great read on ultra sports, I recommend Marshall Ulrichs book.

Brilliant stuff! You know when you flick open a book for a browse? Well, I did that and read the introduction. Then the foreword and before I knew it I was on page 7 thinking I should really be getting on with some work! For a non-ultrarunner but keen mountain-biker I was instantly engaged - thoroughly recommend it.
