This book touches on a bit of everything running related, even stuff that most running books think are too gross or too basic to cover. I love the book title, but don't expect the book innards to be quite so decisive. The author says that the book is not about him, that it is about the reader, and I have to say that whether you agree or disagree with his take on a topic he does make you think about your choices and how you go about making them.

This book had many helpful hints for ultrarunners while still being entertaining to read. I like to know the nitty gritty stuff of it, not just the "transcend the pain and keep going til you reach your magical distance" stuff. Good tips on nutrition (I eat Pop-Tarts now during my long runs to avoid getting gel sick!) and hydration. I also liked the practical training tips, such as what is the best clothing to wear, avoiding heat stress, etc. Good book, may be a little little offensive to those with more delicate sensibilities- I found it to be pretty funny.

Jason is the king of experimentation and thinking outside the box. That is what makes his book so unique and valuable to trail runners of all levels. No matter how seasoned and experienced you are, this book will teach you something new. From essential survival skills to how to motivate yourself with sex, Jason's irreverent sense of humor and unheard-of perspective makes this a must-read for outdoor lovers everywhere.

This is neither an inspiring story nor a great guide, but it doesn't advertise itself as either. It is funny to read, most of the time. It is a good way to learn what I don't know about trail and ultra running, and to figure out what I need to learn about about more in-depth. It is also a great introduction into all the different techniques, gear, philosophies, etc. of running, so you can sort of decide what way you want to go, without having to do the extensive personal experimentation that the author conducted.

This book is good for those like me, that got drawn to the world of Ultra Running for some reason. It may be I am a little crazy and seek a new challenge. Anyway, The book covers the basics and details of how and what you should expect when running an Ultra. A lot of good info on where to find training plans and what equipment you will need. Makes you think about the stuff all the other books do not go into much detail on. Yes, it does answer those questions that you always wonder about during your training runs: how do it...... , what if......., where do I.......

Format: Paperback
This is my least-favorite running book of all time. Robillard's crass writing style was offensive and immature. The book wasn't well-organized. The advice he offers can be found for free in many better-written, more inspiring, and more entertaining books. He admits that this is written as if someone is in a bar talking to drinking buddies. That DEFINITELY comes through and not in a good way. Purchase The Summit Seeker or Eat and Run or Relentless Forward Progress instead. I cannot say that I gained any useful knowledge from this book, nor was I entertained.

Format: Paperback
I really wanted to like this book. It is the sort of irreverent and common sense approach to running/writing you would want to see in a trail running book.

But the truth is, as soon as you get past the genius title, it is just plain boring. And anyone that has spent more than 3 hours on mountain trails will not find a single piece of good advice.

Waste of time and money.

(Turns out the title comes from someone else and not the author...pretty much sums it up.)
