really liked it
Recommended for: runners, triathletes, people curious about how others live
Read in October, 2008 , read count: 1

I wanted a book called "what I think about when I think about swimming" but had to settle for running. My patience was rewarded when later in his life he takes up triathlons and goes through a complete and gradual stroke revision. The writing style is spare, honest and somehow very Japanese. I felt it was very close to his thoughts. The early part seems a bit plodding and unfocused, but by the end I felt very close to him.
