Product description

Review

"Jamie is extremely tough. What he has put his body through both physically and mentally takes a tremendous amount of determination. Not many people could even attempt these challenges. Whether you're 3 years old or 93 years old, we all dream of and long for adventure, but the way Jamie's managed to combine it with fundraising and helping the world is inspirational. His book is a must-read for all!" --Sir Ranulph Fiennes, OBE

"I laughed. I cried. I absolutely loved reading about Jamie's journey--just incredible. It's not just his 5,000-mile Canadian run, but also, more profoundly, the fact that he was sick as a kid and yet still achieved and experienced so many amazing things that makes this book so damn good. What struck me deeply is his humanity and unfailing ability to never give up. . . . It was also great to read about all the people who helped Jamie across our vast country--I couldn't be prouder to be Canadian. This book is unputdownable--a true must-read for anyone looking to find the superhero within themselves." --Clara Hughes, OC OM MS

"Jamie McDonald proves that the ordinary can be extraordinary. Adventureman is an uplifting story of grit and stick-to-it-iveness that both superheroes and everyday heroes will find fascinating." --Dean Karnazes, ultramarathoner and NY Times bestselling author

Review

‘Jamie is extremely tough. What he has put his body through both physically and mentally takes a tremendous amount of determination. Not many people could even attempt the challenges. Whether you’re 3 years old or 93 years old, we all dream of and long for adventure, but the way Jamie’s managed to combine it with fundraising and helping the world is inspirational. His book is a must-read for all!’

(Sir Ranulph Fiennes, OBE)

‘Jamie is the perfect example of a real-life superhero’

(Phil Vickery, MBE)

‘As a double Olympic champion, I know what it’s exactly like, to push yourself to the limit to achieve something incredible. And you’ve done just that. I could never do what you do – mad.’

(Dame Kelly Holmes)

‘… sprinting for 100 metres is one thing, but to run 5000 miles, forget it! You are a legend.’

(Olympian Adam Gemili)

‘I’ve done some pretty hair raising things in my time, but even I’m not daft enough to take on some of the challenges you’ve completed Jamie. And I’m Eddie The Eagle.’

(Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards)

‘Having run many marathons, the last thing I’d do is run across Canada. Jamie, you are proof that grit and determination are what you need to succeed.’

(Paula Radcliffe, MBE)

‘Inspiring… incredible’

(Sir Steve Redgrave)

‘Jamie’s odyssey as he transforms himself from non-runner into trans-continental traverser by running across Canada will both amuse and amaze you. His call to follow his example and unleash your own inner superhero is one that’s hard to resist.’

(Lisa Jackson, best-selling author of Your Pace or Mine? and Running Made Easy)

‘Jamie is a real-life superhero. Not just because of being so selfless and raising a lot of money for charity but for doing challenges that are extreme and that any Olympic athlete would struggle with! A truly inspirational book that will touch people’s hearts across the world and hopefully encourage everyone to make selfless acts of kindness.’

(Rebecca Adlington, OBE)
