Fast After 50: How to Race Strong for the Rest of Your Life
Fast After 50: How to Race Strong for the Rest of Your Life
Price: £6.64

5.0 out of 5 stars Super inspiring, 2 Nov. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
After having turned 50 I found my running speed not improving despite being fitter than I had been for a long time. This book has inspired me to change my training regime and if Joe is right I should see my performance improve.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the most enjoyable, 5 Aug. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
An incredible journey but the writing is a bit dry, lacking humour. From time to time the story line jumps that you think you skipped a page. The most interesting I find of long distance cycling is the interaction with the people you meet. This book is lacking that interaction a bit.

A humorous introduction to vat. Very kind to offer it for free. Very easy read, well explained. Within an hour you know a good bit about the weird and wonderful world of the vat system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick delivery, 5 Aug. 2016

My daughter was very excited about it so when it got delivered several days early she was very happy. The globe itself has enough detail and clarity. Reasonably sturdy stand and turns freely

A well-written, witty report of his recovery and the challenge that he set himself. I'm probably going to read one of his other books on my next holiday - very enjoyable, made me laugh out loud on several occasions.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor language - dialogue-like writing style, 27 May 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Within the first 4 lines of the first chapter I came across the first spelling mistake - please get a professional editor before you publish a book! Every single page has spelling mistakes (I would hope that the author knows the difference between its and it's, there and their etc.). The writing style is like talking to yourself (probably how the author did it, just recorded himself while talking to himself and then typing up his recordings). After the first couple of pages I started flicking though subsequent chapters but found that it didn't improve so I deleted it from my Kindle.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's ok, 22 April 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A collection of articles by various 'people in the know'; journalists and specialists arguing their opinion on the pro's and con's of barefoot running.

I was hoping to find a more detailed argument why barefoot running would be better and a proper training guide to move towards barefoot running.

Was hoping to revive the magic of the first two river God books but find this one a bit hard going.

3.0 out of 5 stars still not sure ..., 2 Sept. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
new control software is better than previous model but uploading files is still slow and painful. I had the previous model which stopped working as in it didn't start up anymore. Directly connecting the disk it appeared that all the data was still readable but it did dent my trust in its reliability so I really only use it as a backup device now as opposed to the heart of my network.
