User Review  - Rikki Beadle-blair - Goodreads

Gripping. Exhilarating. Took a while for me to relax into the slightly hyped up Rolling Stone magazine style prose. But full of outrageous affectionately drawn characters, controversial theories and an indisputable infectious passion for life. Definitely enhanced my joy for running. Read full review

This book is fascinating and inspired me to rethink my running. It tells an interesting story, with entertaining characters.
