A Little Too Litle

O am a runner and I bought this book to hear running stories. There were a few stories I really liked, some that were okay and some that didn't seem worth much. Overall I wanted more good stories.

Not particularly inspiring, mostly boring.

What was most disappointing about the authors’s story?

I haven't finished the audiobook because everytime I attempt to I find myself increasingly agitated by the stories and end up switching to another audiobook. The stories have been thus far almost wholly banal and often grating. The stories are about average people who hated exercising and then started running, and lo and behold, discovered despite themselves that they enjoyed it. This is the great insight from each story and gets boring quickly. They are the types of stories you expect to see in the pages of Self magazine or some other publication cashing in from the weight loss industry. But at least in those pages you'd get the fun of before and after pictures.
