The shear pleasure I derived from listening to this book is difficult to express. Hearing each of the runners' stories, as they dug and clawed their way into sports legend was inpirational and astounding. Each with their own journey and path but each with the same destination. I found myself sitting a few extra minutes in the parking lot, driveway or side of the road just to hear a few more lines from the book (I listen to books in my car for the most part).
I literally did not want this book to end! I hear rumours of this book being made into a movie. I hope they take their time and care when casting this masterpiece.

nailbiting, on the edge of your seat
I have listened to an audiobook everyweek for the last 5 years and this book is on my top 5!! Yeah, I know that Roger Bannister was the first to run the mile in 3:59:4, but this book leaves you on the edge of your seat wondering about the outcome. It makes you want to get off the couch and start running. It is inspirational, a great listen.
