Ultra Running from a Woman Perspective

I listened to this book because I got to personally meet Vanessa and her boyfriend Shaky at Los Pinos 50K in 2011. She brings up good points about the unfairness in the Ultra Running Community between men and women. I do tend to be somewhat biased not because Im a male reading a book that is for female but because I feel she generalizes men in a manner that is not fair because we are all different yet despite that I am open minded enough to see through her eyes while also being objective. It is a good read.
