He is such a fabulous story teller that you almost don't realize how much you're learning. A truly enjoyable read!

Running is the most basic form of transportation, and without it we have to fight to be taken seriously as human. What this book argues convincingly, is that most of us haven't a clue as to how fall short we are falling our potential. This book is a wake up call to take back our human potential.

I've read a lot of books by runners and triathletes and this book remains a favourite. It changed the way I thought about the mind body connection when I run and gave me the motivation to train for my first full marathon. Read this book!

Fantastic read. Couldn't put it down. The running aspect was almost secondary to the unbelievably interesting people involved in the book. Fascinating.
