  • "Great book - misleading title"

    Overall

    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.

  • Beware of the Dog: Rugby's Hard Man Reveals All

    "poor ABRIDGED version, very little structure"

    Overall

    This is more of a lame preview than a reading of the book. At 2 hours (only realised after I picked it) I knew it would be short, but this version misses some of his main points in the book, especially about his "Gollum". There are a couple of references but it's never explained for people who don't know.

    I've consigned myself to buying the book at some point and reading it, but really would have preferred to have had it as an audio version...

    If you feel the need for listening to this version, or have already and didn't understand it, listen to his BBC "Desert Island Discs" interview - was far more revealing and heartfelt, if I was reviewing that, it would have got 4/5 stars... I'm only giving this 2 as there are some good elements in there, but sooooo poorly editied, it's a shame considering the source material (the book) and his capabilities as a speaker (the BBC DID interview).

    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.

    On a fateful night in 2009, Tyler Hamilton and Daniel Coyle met for dinner at a restaurant in Boulder, Colorado. The two had met five years before while Coyle was writing his best-selling book Lance Armstrong: Tour de Force. But this time, Tyler had something else on his mind. He finally wanted to come clean, about everything: the doping, the lying, his years as Lance Armstrong's teammate on U.S. Postal,, and his decade spent running from the truth. "I'm sorry," he told Coyle. "It just feels so good to be able to talk about this. I've been quiet for so many years."

    Ned Boulting has noticed something. It's to do with bikes. They're everywhere. And so are their riders. Some of these riders seem to be sporting sideburns and a few of them are winning things. Big things. Now Ned wants to know how on earth it came to this. And what, exactly is 'this'. In On the Road Bike, Ned Boulting asks how Britain became so obsessed with cycling. Ned's search puts him in contact with some of the wonderful and wonderfully idiosyncratic people who have contributed to this nation's two-wheeled history.

    Once a Runner captures the essence of what it means to be a competitive runner; to devote your entire existence to a single-minded pursuit of excellence. It has become one of the most beloved sports novels ever written. Originally self-published in 1978 and sold at road races out of the trunk of the author's car, reading the book became a rite of passage for many runners, and tattered copies were handed down like sacred texts from generation to generation.

He is responsible for incredible moments so ingrained in basketball history that they have their own names: The Shrug, The Shot, The Flu Game. But for all his greatness, there's also a dark side to Jordan: a ruthless competitor, a gambler. There's never been a biography that balanced these personas-until now.

Hesson, one of the first to conquer the huge waves off northern California known as Mavericks, recognized that the kid "had a vision." Jay quickly demonstrated a resolve that reminded Frosty of his younger self, pursuing his goal with a seriousness far beyond his years. His attitude and work ethic earned Frosty's respect and, eventually, his friendship.

    What's there left to say about Tim Tebow? He's brilliant and appalling, inspiring and annoying - a straightforward young man who somehow played and prayed his way into being the most enigmatic figure in American sports. In the essay-length Kindle Single "The Gospel According to Tim", Joseph Bottum argues that Tebow strikes a nerve because he has slipped beyond all the usual categories of our wink-and-nudge culture of irony. And he's done that mostly by being simply who he is: not a football-playing theologian but, in essence, a mystic.

    The summer of 2012 has become the Summer of 43 - as in the summer of R. A. Dickey, the 37-year-old knuckleball pitcher who wears Number 43 on the mound for the New York Mets. As his knuckleballs flutter and drop through the strike zone, befuddling batters and producing a 12-1 record by the All Star break, Dickey has become one of the greatest feel-good stories of baseball history: the man who found redemption, after years of adversity, by mastering one of the strangest and most difficult pitches in the game.

    In his late 30s, celebrated essayist, journalist, and author Bill McKibben - never much of an athlete - decided the time had come for him to really test his body. Cross-country skiing his challenge of choice, he lived the fantasy of many amateur athletes and trained - with the help of a coach/guru - nearly full-time, putting in hours and miles typical of an Olympic hopeful. For one vigorous year, which would culminate in a series of grueling, long-distance races, McKibben experienced his body's rhythms and possibilities as never before.
