A terribly dull, opinionated and misinformed book.
on 22 March 2015
I was very disappointed by this book, and I struggle to understand how other people find it inspirational and funny. The author seems vain and somewhat misanthropic. The book is full of psychobabble, and constantly references the sayings of others, particularly Ortega and Emerson, in an attempt to support his own vague ideas about life. He's also an adherent of William Sheldon's discredited theories, which effectively say that you can tell everything about a person, personality and all, just by looking at them. It's as crazy a theory as phrenology, and a disturbing belief coming from a medical doctor. It doesn't help that he's a Christian, and sees a divine power in the background. This book has practically nothing worthwhile to say about either life or running.
