I wanted to read/ listen to this after learning about Scott Jurek in "Born to Run".
The title slightly put me off, as I was worried that it would be very preachy about the vegan lifestyle, but it isn't.
The story is fascinating and inspiring and every so often he throws in some great running tips.
Definitely worth a read/ listen.
a great book for anyone interested in running or training for any run from a 10km to a marathon and beyond (and you will learn all about how far beyond people go!)
I'm trying not to gush about this book, but here we go: brace yourselves! There are more "A-Ha!" moments in this book than I could keep count of whilst driving and pottering about. I resented having to sleep whilst I was listening to this book - it made so much sense, joined so many dots - I was afraid that an interrupted read might mean risking missing a point. Christopher MacDougall deserves a big "thank you" this book - it has changed my running life, overturned a good deal of marketing bunk, and allowed me to shrug off years-old running injuries. Incidentally, the author also does a great talk on Ted.com with the same title - but do get the book, it has WAY more depth and insights than the talk can cram in. A Must for all athletes, recommended for all humans.
