Publisher's Summary

Shortlisted for Best New Writer of the Year - The British Sports Book Awards 2012
This book is both a lesson in true grit and determination, but its goal is one that is attainable. Andy isn't a sporting superstar, he holds down a nine-to-five job and all the pressures that go with it; he isn’t blessed with speed and talent; there are no multi-million pound sponsorship deals; yet this remarkable "common man" is inspiring in a way that some of today’s sporting superstars have forgotten how to be. You wouldn’t recognize Andy in the street, yet his story provides valuable lessons to us all: "Never give up" and "Anything is possible".

From a triathlete

Any additional comments?

I am an amateur and avid triathlete myself so I thought this book might be tailor made for myself. However, the author of the book was not a down-to-earth man. The book is full of unnecessary exaggerating and boring descriptions, and excuses when the author - an avid triathlete - failed. <br/>The book contained only very few advices for an amateur triathlete. <br/>Narration was no good either.<br/>If you are a beginning or just amateur triathlete I'd suggest to listen or read Iron War or I'm here to Win by Chris McCormack.

Listen to the Sample before you buy PLEASE !!!!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

If Andy Holgate read it himself, or to be honest any other Brit.<br/>Gregory St. John’s performance is absolutely appalling. In my opinion the Author should sue.

What did you like best about this story?

The Story it's self is a light hearted look at what the author went through to fulfill his goals, so as stories go its alright.

Would you be willing to try another one of Gregory St. John’s performances?

to be honest.........NO

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

good honest down to earth story, I would consider the sequel as long as the narrator is changed

Any additional comments?

Americans attempting British accents tend to do it badly BEWARE

READ the book! the narration will offend your ears

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

The time was painfully spent, much as I wanted to know the story I couldn't cope with the truly awful narration. If Gregory St. John had stuck to his own accent the experience would have been immeasurably improved. Not since Dick Van Dyke in Mary Poppins has the English language been so cruelly mistreated. If it were possible to give minus 'stars' for the narration I would have done so.

How could the performance have been better?

Silence!
