This book captures the imagination somewhat with it's title and I ordered it without much thought. I thought it would be a book of ultra running tales similar to "Running though the wall" and "And then the vulture eats you" but it is in fact a beginners guide to running ultra marathons. The author describes.

"One average dude with limited athletic ability publicly writing a not-so-serious ultramarathon book for the rest of us"

It's certainly not one of the sterile and morbid guides to running you can get but quite a funny guide to running that most people would enjoy reading. Obviously being a super elite awesome ultra running machine that I am there is little I have to learn about the sport but this book suprised me with a combination of basic ultra running know-how and some pretty cool advice.

There is a lot of advice on how to survive the elements, hot and cold, wind and rain. There are tips on how to read the clouds and the animals to determine how long you have left to live on your run and some great general advice on first ultras and trails. I learned a bit on walking training and "speed-ups" during races. There are a lot of ideas here to try.

However I think this book goes to areas that others dare not go, the author has experimented heavily and can give you great tips on shaving certain areas to avoid chaffing (and maybe please others), how to get away with killing your annoying running buddy and.. erm.. "relieving" yourself on a run .

Jason Robillard is a man who has experimented on himself (in an ultra running sense of course) and is sharing all that he has learned, as he mentions at the start he is not on the heels of Kilian Jornet but more likely on the floor in a bar.

A crudely funny account of running in the wild and all its wonders and demands. Probably the best way to learn about ultra running before giving it a go - you'll learn things you won't find in a traditional book, including things you can't un-learn (some of which you will wish you could!). Not for the faint-hearted.

A good book to go back to during training.

Born to Run was inspiring but very romantic. This book elaborates on the practical details required for ultra running in a down-to-earth way, with stabs of hilarity making it a spot-on read.

Loved the book, very funny and thought provoking. Wont give you a training plan but helped me research into other areas of training. The pictures were a nice touch. Very good web links

Great book and really goes into useful details that otherwise the only way to learn is by mistakes. I really enjoyed it and would thoroughly recommend it for any trail runners.

This book does exactly what it claims to. It offers useful advice which is disregarded by many other trail/ultra books. I found it to be an enjoyable read with many humourous stories and some great life advice.
