Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“I’ve seen Scott in action as he defies unimaginable challenges, and, thanks to this breathtakingly personal account, I finally understand how he does it. He rebuilt himself literally from the inside out, and the result is a man—and a story—unlike any other.” Christopher McDougall, New York Times bestselling author of Born to Run
“This is the inspiring story of an inspired man. Scott Jurek’s phenomenal success as an ultramarathoner demonstrates that meat and other animal foods are not necessary for optimum health, strength, and endurance.”   Andrew Weil, MD, New York Times bestselling author of Spontaneous Healing
“Jurek’s story and ideas should easily manage to speak to and cheer on anyone seeking to live life as fully as possible.” Denver Post
“Part memoir, part training guide, part vegan manifesto, Jurek’s most inspiring proposal here is that running—like so many things in life—is less dependent on physical skill than it is on willpower. Runners of all levels…will be inspired to lace up their sneaks and hit the trails.” Amazon.com, editorial review
“The man Runner’s World calls the ‘King of Pain’ says that though winning is important, he views running as a vehicle of self-discovery…This autobiography combines jaunty reminiscences, philosophical reflections, training tips, and nutritional guidelines…Jurek’s good spirits and valorous performances have won him more than 14,000 Facebook fans and 20,000 Twitter followers.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“A shockingly honest, revealing, and inspiring memoir.” Trail Runner
“His achievements prove Jurek is doing something right…Blended with the pro running tips and marathons, Jurek serves up some of his original food recipes to power up the novice or the professional athlete on his way to the finish line in this life-changing track primer. Accessible and riveting, Jurek’s book makes the task of self-transformation look effortless, from illness to wellness, from reluctance to triumph, yet this hard-fought journey to consciousness is not a small feat.” Publishers Weekly
“You don’t need dead protein to be a great athlete…Here he explains how he came to running and then to veganism. He’s obviously one enduring guy, and this book is motivational in the larger sense.” Library Journal
“The author begins with a frank account of lessons he learned from a difficult childhood…[His] divorce, combined with the death of his mother, contributed to a win drought; during these sections of the book, the author displays genuine introspection…[revealing] that achieving goals is often less important than striving toward them.” Kirkus Reviews
“Jurek studied many of the great philosophers and used their lessons to focus his running. In pursuing the mental side of endurance, Jurek uncovers the most important secrets any runner can learn.” Amby Burfoot, winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon and author of The Runner’s Guide to the Meaning of Life
