Wonderful blend of real life experience and of processing of experience!

Compelling and sympathetic presentation of the painful healing and growth from alcoholism and shame. In spite of that valuable but seemingly earnest material, this woven tale draws the reader in and makes us care for the author and his journey, enjoy his growth and see our own selves in the story and gain empathy for others.

Finally a success story from someone who is not a famous CEO

Books about success in life and how to overcome major obstacles are certainly not hard to find. What troubles me is that most often they are written by people who live in a different universe. That of million-dollar-salary CEOs or movie stars and the like. This one is from a guy who was really believably at rock bottom and pulled himself out of it by finding running as his new addiction. I got much encouragement from his story.

interesting story

The author was very descriptive in telling his story. I was expecting a lot more of a story of his running and training.

Didn't want it to end

I've read a lot of books on recovery but this one touched me in a way I can't explain. I too have looked to running for my sanity and sanctuary while getting sober and I hung on every word as the author read. I will listen to this book again and recommend it to anyone.

Worth listening to

Overall I liked the book. Was not gripping or nor one of my favorites but I enjoyed listening to his story of how running helped him overcome addictions in his life.
