I could not put this book down. Dean Karnazes writes about his unbelievable running feats in a totally self deprecating manner and is simply inspirational. Few books (and I've rad many in this genre) combine such incredible achievements with such modesty and humility. If you are interested in running or pushing the limits of the human spirit you will LOVE this book.
