    I started off not liking this book The writing was choppy, back and forth between different story lines, and the characters themselves Salazar and Beardsley were not likable in the way that John Brant was portraying them The fierce competition and obsessive nature of the sport made them almost pa

    This is the story of probably the most epic marathon of all time, Boston 1982 It is also a biography of the two frontrunners, Alberto Salazar and Dick Beardsley their backgrounds, what motivated them, what they did afterward As a runner, it s fascinating to read about what compels these people to race THAT

    I love running books They are my version of a beach read Books about epic struggle Books about crazy dedication obsession to pushing oneself to greater achievements I did not know the story of the 82 marathon and Salazar and Beardsley I enjoyed learning about it.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here Not sure if I bought the premise that the 82 Boston Marathon led to the ruin of both men, particularly Salazar, but Brant uses the idea pretty well to string together a book about a single great race The race descriptions are the best part of the

    Very good running book that was actually three stories in one Two of the threads were the personal biographies of U.S Marathoners Alberto Salazar and Dick Beardsley Each of these guys had some pretty impactful events in their lives outside of their running The author then wove the two biographies together by interspersing the story of

    As I often find to be the case with sports books, at first I thought this book to be poorly written, overwritten cliched at parts In the end I guess I stopped noticing that though Quick read and enjoyable Honestly I could imagine some who isn t into running liking this book since it wasn t just about the race, or even mostly about the race, but

    Overall, an interesting and exciting book I actually didn t know who won the marathon, and the book kept the secret well except for the picture on the front cover.Although I feel there could have beencontent about the race itself, these runners have very interesting pre and post marathon l...

    For anyone who has ever dreamed of or completed a marathonwith some great insight into what goes ON in the heads of elite athletes during a race This made me want to run Boston and meet both Dick Beardsley and Alberto Salazar, who regularly give speeches based on the events described in the book.
