- John Brenkus, Creator and Host of ESPN s Sport Science and "New York Times"bestselling author of "The Perfection Point"
If you liked "Born to Run," you ll love "Finding Ultra" one of the best books about health and fitness that I ve ever read.
--Neal D. Barnard, MD, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine
"Finding Ultra "is the ultimate story of hope, perseverance and endurance against life s biggest challenges.
--William Cope Moyers, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption"
Roll has accomplished amazing things, but it is his ability to draw inspiring and uniquely insightful lessons from his experiences that sets him apart from other extreme athletes. "Finding Ultra "is a fascinating read full of practical tips.
--Dean Karnazes, nationally bestselling author of "Ultramarathon Man "
""
"Finding Ultra "is about a journey we all take as human beings, when we decide to pursue the impossible and live a life of mission. When I need to dig deeper, push harder, and find a little boost, Rich Roll is the guy who comes to mind. He is inspiration embodied.
--Sanjay Gupta, M.D., Emmy Award-winning Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN and "New York Times" bestselling author of "Chasing Life "and "Cheating Death"
You walk away from reading this book knowing you have the total power to transform your life on every level Roll is immensely likeable, a most compelling storyteller, and a true shaman of health and fitness!
--Kathy Freston, "New York Times" bestselling author of "Quantum Wellness "and"Veganist "
"This awesome piece of writing one-part memoir, one-part how-to, and one part megadose of gut truth reminds us to wake up and live our best life. Prepare to be entertained, but most of all, prepare to be inspired.
--Mel Stewart, 14-Time National Champion, former World Record Holder, and Winner of Two Olympic Gold Medals in swimming
I loved this. A rare book, unusual for its honesty and willingness to bare all, that really does deserve such superlatives as riveting and compelling. I was moved by watching Roll conquer his demons, and felt privileged to share in his eventual enlightenment. By laying it on the line, Roll absolutely wins us over.
--Rip Esselstyn, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Engine 2 Diet"
""
An incredibly inspirational book about achieving greatness at any age through self-belief and a positive attitude. Rich Roll is a true champion of life and sport."

""Finding Ultra" is an inspired first-person account of fast living and even faster swimming, biking and running that will leave you convinced of the power of your own will."

A tribute to the fortitude of the human spirit, and the power each of us has to grab hold of our life and achieve the unexpected. For anyone who feels stuck, Rich offers sage advice on everything from relationships to lifestyle to diet to spiritual well-being.
-Dave Zabriskie, Five-Time National Time-Trial Champion in cycling
An inspiring story of a man whose life took a tragic turn but then rebounded spectacularly. Down but not out, Rich Roll rose like a phoenix, taking the commitment to his own health to a new level and achieving a remarkable transformation. I believe everyone will be able to relate to this plant-powered athlete s riveting story and perhaps garner some inspiration for their own journey. A top read!
-Luke McKenzie, Five-Time Ironman Champion
