UGH. This is one of those books that I forced myself to finish so I could truly say I hated it. It gets one star for the genuinely interesting historical interludes, but every other aspect was horrible. I hate to say it, because he did accomplish an incredible physical/psychological feat, but the problem with this book is Jack Hitt. He is simultaneously one of the most smurfy and condescending writers I have come across. If it had been a straight-forward history I would have loved it; as it is, he comes off as incredibly unlikable and not someone you want to spend 250 pages with.
