I couldn't finish this book. I couldn't stand Annerino. I realize he in theory is espousing a mindfulness perspective in running, but it came across egotistical and over the top dramatic to me. I also thought the writing was very poor. I am clearly missing something as good friends love this book, but it is not for me.

I have no memory of reading this book but a little 4x6 card says I did and that I made connections with his description of running on the Tonto platform in the Grand Canyon where I once did a 30 mile jaunt. Still, no memory. My guess is that book was only good because it was about running.
