What did you like most about Still Not Bionic?
This book was just great. From depression to success. It shows the highs and lows in someones everyday lives and how sport can help with mental issues. I find that if I go on a run and I've something on my mind, it feels so much better afterwards.
What did you like best about this story?
Some of the stories of both failure and success while running are an inspiration. To hear others suffering the same problems in sport that you do reminds yourself that you are just human too and indeed not bionic
What about Sam Devereaux’s performance did you like?
Sam read this very well and he was easy to listen to throughout.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The realisation that giving up your life really wasn't the best option. Having lost a brother to suicide, it's hard to understand why someone would do that but to hear that others have the same dark thoughts can help you understand the desperation that those that choose suicide must be going through.
Any additional comments?
I just thoroughly enjoyed this book from the first word to the last. Having been out of running just for two weeks really did depress me but knowing that the road will still be there waiting for you, not judging, not commenting but just welcoming is a great comfort when injuries or illness remove you from trainers...
Second book I’ve read by Ira Rainey, both excellent and impossible to put down! Nicely written and narrated, you don’t need to know anything about running to really enjoy this, as it’s not a detailed description of how to run more an insight into how it is for him to run. Highly recommended!!
