The best American Ultramarathoner in the U.S. is what this book is about, what he does will make most people uneasy. Those who run will either shake their heads or be motivated to perhaps move on to greater distances. This book covers how he came to ultra running, his turn to vegan eating, and a good glimpse into the mind of a long distance runner.

I was hesitating buying this book because of negative reviews but I found many of the reviews to overly nitpicky. There is a good amount of detail in this book on nutrition, the mind of an ultra runner, and his racing life. I never felt overwhelmed with details but enough there to inform me of the great races and the preparation for them. His stories seem more like fiction because of the level he is at. If you workout, or don't, this will motivate to do more or start doing something you never thought possible because sometimes you just do things.
