The page design, the photos and the print quality is very satisfying.
A warning for the readers who is looking for technical data and training tips; please not this is not a "trainer" book, but it is a "must have" item, since the psychological stamina is needed as much as the physical stamina for ultr running. And this is what this book can provide you. Ther will be always a "better" but this one is the best from my opinion now.
That's why they all run it. Insane is normal in this crowd and how fun it is to be around some normal people for a change if you are an "Ultra".
If you have an endurance junkie they will love this book and highlight the pages and do a Google search. They already KNOW where are these races are and the winners. If you have a mild runner they will be sickened at the thought and may not connect to the material. If you are married to one of these endurance junkies you just found your summer read.
