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
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.
The book contained only very few advices for an amateur triathlete.
Narration was no good either.
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.
Great tale of reaching for goals.
I am a fan of triathlon, and Ironman (long course) triathlon in particular, and I love reading how others find themselves pursuing the sport. This author and competitor regales us with tales of the sport, how he came to participate, and how and why he continues. He does so with engaging humor and humility. I know he has one other book about his continuation in the sport; hoping that one comes out in audio (it's not available on Audible at this point - Sept 2017) but I'll read it in print if I have to! Great stories!
