Congratulations to Mr. Wiegand for going so far in debunking the myth that meat and dairy are required to compete at the highest levels of endurance sports! Also in showing that one can expect an increased edge over others while consuming a plant based diet during training and competition. His list of current vegan champions in their respective sports supports his work. Less sleep required, less recovery time and greater and greater energy are what one draws from his experiences and documentation from a vegan diet. While some look at veganism as a personal-philosophical -spiritual choice it becomes clear through the reading of the book that veganism simply is superior in every measurable aspect of physical and emotional health. I can corroborate that one CAN even do some training while vegan without necessarily eating/fueling up before a training session (i.e run, bycicling) as the diet gives so much energy. I will add through experience that the more raw one's diet becomes the greater one's energy is felt.

I was really looking forward to reading this but honestly, I was really disappointed. Given the title and the size of the book, I thought the whole book was going to be about ultimate vegan nutrition for endurance sports. Instead, the first 20 pages or so were just about the author, the next 100 pages or so are about the benefits of being vegan with a few references to endurance sports (there are plenty of books already available about being vegan), and whilst the rest of the book eventually gets into what to eat with regards to elements of endurance sports, it's only really to do with the author's experiences so there's little reassurance of how concrete the advice is, especially when a significant number of points go against the grain of much other advice I've heard, it gets highly complicated in places, flits from subject to subject, including bits of advice for running, cycling and a tiny bit for swimming, and doesn't flow, and I basically lost the plot and wasn't reassured of anything suggested. As I said, I had high hopes for this, so I'm not writing this out of vindictiveness but as a review, so therefore only my humble opinion, the book didn't offer what I really thought it would, so if I save someone some time and money, it's not all bad...

I have only just gone vegan (after being vegetarian for a while) and I have also just started running (the goal being to run a marathon) so when I found this book on Amazon I decided to take a chance and buy it - and I'm glad I did.
The information in it is fairly non-specific and general (though still very important!!), covering nutrition and race prep. The lack of specifics was deliberate on the part of the author and he states this and his reasons why at the beginning of the book (which do make total sense).
For me this book has been great, it has given me a great starting point (and some motivation, which was a fantastic bonus!) - however for more experienced Vegan runners it may not be detailed enough. Overall I feel that this is a good starting point for any vegan runners out there and if you're a newbie like me then I would recommend getting it.

Having been vegan for quite a few years I was looking for a book which would give me some idea about how far I could push my body when exercising & also what I should be taking into consideration with my diet.
The author doesn't seem to eat a wide variety of foods in his diet. He seems to eat a lot a bananas & drink a lot of soya milk.
It is great to see Vegan's out there explaining about their life but this book didn't really do it for me. I gave it to another vegan friend, who was training for a marathon, as I knew I would never use it again. This is the first vegan related book I have ever given away. However, my friend quite liked the book.
I much preferred Scott Jurek's book Eat & Run. Although Scott's book is more about his life he does give a recipe at the end of each chapter. His diet seems much more varied.
