Check out Ultramarathon Man by Dean Karnazes. I really enjoyed it!

No book will be a solution for anything. But I re-read three books on a yearly basis. I don't view them as "facts of life" or "biblical", I simply find them to correlate with my own values, ethics and morals, so they serve a bit as an anchor if I start drifting. They aren't necessarily great works of art or terribly educational.

If you haven't read Ultramarathon Man you need to. He talks about this race and how you have to run on the white line to avoid your shoes melting.

This was the first book on running I read. I enjoyed it and have just started reading it for the second time.

I would like to participate.

Here are three books that might fit the theme.

CJ Chivers "The Gun" - Well written and details the development of the AK-47 which has impacted men's lives for three generations now.

Geoff Colvin "Talent Is Overrated" - We are all trying to change ourselves for the better. That takes focus and determination. This book is definitely echoing that view.

Dean Karnazes, "Ultramarathon Man" - Good biography about a man transforming himself. Lots of fuck yeah moments.

*All three of these have audiobook versions availible from Audible so that could be a boon for the dyslexic amoungst us who have issues reading.

Of the three I would say Talent Is Overrated would probably prompt more discussion. The Ultramarathon Man might be good for a working out themed choice. The Gun is just a damn good book that combines politics, engineering and war.

Yes. After reading this book my father lost a vast amount of weight through walking and just eating a little bit better. Get a pedometer and aim for 10,000 steps per day to start out with.

You will not be wasting your time as long as you are consistent. Since he started walking, he's become a very successful race walker.
