Great next step after "Born to Run"

This is a wonderful book, a very personal account of life and running by Scott Jurek. Having read Born to Run I was keen to know more about what running, and what something as extreme as an ultramarathon meant to those who participated and were passionate. Scott gives an intimate account of what running has brought him, how the physical challenge stretched his mind and touched his soul, this I really appreciated. He also gives plenty of practical information; running tips, training guidance and then his food philosophy and recipes making for a very wholesome read. Highly recommended! The only aspect that I found a little jarring was the narrator, it took me time to adapt to his narration, which at times I found quite aggressive. Having said this it was not a poor performance and just took some getting used to.

If you liked "Born to Run"...get this book!!!

It is a real person with a real life story. It isnt all happy endings and wonderful times. Scott has an amazing drive, and strong need to run, but we see that he is just a human too. So there is bad, good, and even harsh. I laughed out loud quite a few times, and cried quite a few as well, but I felt as though I was on the journey with him. I have even more respect for him after this book than I did after "Born to Run", which is where I learned about Scott. I have followed Scott since I read that book, and have enjoyed his career, and I find him very inspirational.

I was amazed by his candor, and ability to talk about some of the personal things he covers. It truly makes me ADMIRE him all the more.

If you liked "Born to Run", you will like this book. Please remember it is a personal memoir, not a bunch of different people's stories as in BtR. Although you do get to meet all of those characters from Scott's point of view.

I highly recommend this book!!!

OH...one more thing...Alot of the vegan receipts at the end are great!!! I went out and bought the hard copy for a cook book!!!

Great book - misleading title

I wanted to read/ listen to this after learning about Scott Jurek in "Born to Run".

The title slightly put me off, as I was worried that it would be very preachy about the vegan lifestyle, but it isn't.

The story is fascinating and inspiring and every so often he throws in some great running tips.

Definitely worth a read/ listen.

Brilliant story - none of the boring bits!!

A good book can be turned into a VERY good book by a VERY good narrator. This guy does the job really well.

I listened from beginning to end. Brilliant book!

Plants and running - it can be done

Endurance athletes know discipline but to do it all on a fully plants-based diet is amazing and inspiring. Incredible! Try the 9 grain pancakes and you will be impressed.
