Great book, but be warned it is probably only for those who are or have been serious competitive runners of a decent standard (from 36min 10K up to Olympic level). If that is you then you should find a lot to relate to in this book. If you only run casually then you may not find it that interesting and would probably prefer "Running with the Kenyans".

this is my first review here, so please bare with me.
it is a book where you read the first page, the second, the third, and keep going till you finish. it keeps you hooked. it not only motivates you for running, but in thinking about life itself. absolutely loved it.

A thoroughly inspirational read. I love running and normally read sports biographies so I wasn't sure I would get on with a novel about running, but I think I got through it in a couple of days. Truly excellent writing.

I've read a lot of books about running and this is the only one that I just couldn't put down. Beautifully written with an ending that leaves you breathless. Fabulous.

Great read. If you have ever tried to train yourself to run any sort of distance goal and experienced the ups and downs this book will surely grip you.
