5.0 out of 5 stars Helps you to read more into your own 'routine'!, 31 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I got this book as a Kindle download. It took me a few chapters to 'get' the format of the writing and what Alastair was trying to achieve with the book. Once I did, wow!! I genuinely couldn't stop reading. The short, snappy chapters keep interest and all convey a different, concise message to the reader. I was through the whole thing in a couple of hours!

Having completed a few smaller scale adventures of my own, many of the thoughts and feelings Alastair communicates in the book make perfect sense to me. They have helped me to understand, just a little, my own thoughts and feelings.

A great way to spend an evening!

I've been following Sarah's current adventure and was told about this book - thoroughly enjoyed it! It's a mix of self doubt, self belief, fear, determination, and awe-inspiring effort. If you are looking for a read that is well written and inspirational, you've just found it! Brilliant! Five stars

Mark's book is a worthy successor to his first, 'The Man Who Cycled the World'. I have read both books over the past year whilst looking for inspiration for completng my 7 day LEJOG this summer.

I found both books to be extremely well written, detailed without 'going on', and clearly recording the journey as it unfolded. Mark's thoughts and feelings are portrayed in a way that allows anyone with some experience of pushing themselves to fully engage with.

I pre-ordered this book a couple of months ago and kind of forgot about it! It arrived on my doormat last week and I had read it in 4 evenings! I really couldn't put it down! I even cut short my 20+ mile bike-commute home to get back into it!

I would highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to enjoy a vivid and truthful account of an awesome journey!

Just get on and read it! Five stars! Full marks (I am a teacher afterall!)
