"Taylor's self-deprecating, sardonic writing style turns what could have been tiresome descriptions of his training regime and his first few races into laugh-aloud prose. [His] book is both amusing and eye-opening and will appeal to a wide range of readers - even those whose running experience is limited to sprinting for the morning bus.' - Booklist"
