Makes you want to run an Ultra Marathon

by Antonio on 9/27/2006

Great mind candy for a long distance runner. Dean's writing style is very easy to follow, great insight on what an ultra runner goes through. As a runner of over a dozen marathons I've never even thought of running an ultra...until reading this book. Dean really makes you think that an experience such as an ultra can really change ones life. The only cons of the book are that he has a bit of Forrest Gump syndrome, i.e. every word uttered and every step taken in his life seems to have been poetic and with purpose, but a great read for a runner nonetheless. Since the publishing of this book Dean has gone on to tackle even more incredible running challenges and if he decides to write about those experiences I will be the first in line to buy his next book. Definitely worth a read.

Product Overview

"Ultra Marathon Man" is Dean Karnazes' story: the mind-boggling adventures of his nonstop treks through the hell of Death Valley, the incomprehensible frigidity of the South Pole, and the breathtaking beauty of the mountains and canyons of the Sierra Nevada. Karnazes captures the euphoria and out-of-body highs of these adventures.
