Editorial Reviews


"'If you want to win something, run 100 metres. If you want to experience something, run a marathon' - Emil Zatopek * 'The best of many books on the subject I have ever read.' - Daily Mail * 'Hugely readable and occasionally hilarious.... Bryant is also very good at capturing the essential motivations of the marathon runner...My guess is that this book will inspire countless others to seek out that marathon entry form themselves' - Daily Telegraph * Praise for 3:59.4: 'It conveys well the momentousness of the achievement - It captures the power of the amateur spirit' Alastair Campbell, The Times"
