3.0 out of 5 stars Story of a spoiled brat, not very relevant, 2 May 2014
This review is from: Finding Ultra: Rejecting Middle Age, Becoming One of the World's Fittest Men, and Discovering Myself (Paperback)
He author had a privileged upbringing and coasted through Ivy League schools. This isn't a story of a self-made man. My reaction is, 'hey, your parents gave you a great foundation in life, it's you who chose to be an alcoholic and a loser'. Anyway, the preoccupation with ultra-endurance events is pretty common among ex-addicts, as it allows the addiction to continue with less detriment to the addict's life. This is a good thing overall.
Preaching veganism is annoying. What makes one person feel energetic makes another person feel sick. I tried his nutritional setup for 30 days, followed it to the letter, and was miserable. Veganism is not for everyone, and everyone has to make their own decisions based on first-hand experience, not propaganda.
There are some interesting bits, like the story of thr EPIC5 challenge.
Overall I found that the story wasn't very relevant to me, but it was an OK read for 2 evenings.
