2/3 of the things of the book are done brilliantly. The tip and training secrets are great. The Brownlee brothers inside the race commentary is amazing. The only thing that was just ok is the book just did not grip me the way some other sports autobiographies did. This could be because simply because these boys train so hard, and love what they do, so the racing is almost a forgone conclusion. Don't get me wrong the races they do talk are described excellently. However they is not enough of their races in the book. This is just the choice made by the authors to concentrate on the training, as this is where races are really won and lost. As important as this is it is not the most exciting part. From a training point of view and if look at what it takes physically, mentally and drive you need to succeed at the elite level you could not find a better book, but I wish it was another 100 pages longer so they could talk more about the races as well.
I would recommend this book to anyone who has an interest in sport to gain some insight into what it really takes to become the best.
My only grip is I wish we had one story and then the other instead of chopping and changing it became quite irrating and I was constantly flicking back to work out whose account it was.
Bought this for my Mum at Christmas and she very much enjoyed it. These boys grew up and still do run in places she knew from her childhood, which made for a nice read. This along with the lifetime of sport made the content of the book very interesting, and it is great to read about the hard work and dedication required to get to the top from them. Two talented brothers from Yorkshire who became the best in the world.
