5.0 out of 5 stars Impausible and utterly compelling, 26 Mar 2014
This review is from: Running and Stuff (Kindle Edition)
I love James' book - it is absolutely enthralling and a honest account of what it takes to do extraordinary things (in James' case in running ultra distances - but the principles of self belief, determination, humbleness and positivity are applicable to so many areas of life). James recently read an excerpt from his book at the launch of Like the Wind magazine and the room full of hardened, experienced and most probably cynical runners were left speechless and open-mouthed in admiration. This is a really great book - well written, moving, funny and inspiring. Buy it because you won't be disappointed.

1.0 out of 5 stars Rubbish, 29 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Cheaply made rubbish that didn't work when I received it and pretty much went straight in the bin. Save your money and don't buy this product.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading for marathon runners, 29 Nov 2012
This is quite simply a brilliant book. Gabrielle Collison has really done her research and what comes out of the interviews is the fiercely competitive and at the same time overwhelmingly modest characters of the people running amazing times in marathons in the 1980s. As a dedicated runner myself, I realise how much more I can afford to put in to my running and the additional dedication it will take to get to the next level. I would recommend this book wholeheartedly to anyone thinking that 'just getting round' is not enough for them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant insight, 4 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After reading the articles that Adharanand wrote in the Guardian whilst he was out in Kenya, I was extremely excited to have an opportunity to read the book. It did not disappoint - at time funny, moving, instructional and inspiring, I think that in the end Finn manages to answer the question that runs throughout the book - what is it that makes Kenya such an endurance running hot spot. I won't ruin the book for readers, but the answer is both simple and deeply complex... and well worth reading the book for. My extended review is at [...]

5.0 out of 5 stars just brilliant, 14 Aug 2002
This review is from: The Harder They Come (Audio CD)
Put simply, this album will leave you feeling great. From the upbeat dance of '007' (oh oh seven) to the heart breaking 'Many Rivers To Cross' this album will lift you spirits if you love reggae and make you love reggae if you don't already. A classic, buy this album, sit back and enjoy.
