1.0 out of 5 stars Narcissistic twaddle, 12 Nov. 2012
I bought this book because I love to run. Thinking it might give me something to think about on a long run, I eagerly started reading. However, it didn't take long before I was getting frustrated by the number of times the author tells us that he is a writer...I know that already, I'm reading one of his books! What he talks about when he talks about running is...himself. I found it somewhat annoying at the way he constantly kept blowing his own trumpet and at the same time telling us nothing. In the end this book became a chore to read. Buy "Ultra Marathon Man" by Dean Karnazes which is a fantastic book and beautifully written.
