Despite his considerable athleticism, "Karno" argues that the first half of any race is run with one's body, and the second half with the mind. Without delving into excessively touchy-feely territory, he explores "the possibilities of self" as he completes an ultra-marathon in 120-degree heat in Death Valley, and later the first-ever marathon at the South Pole. It's an odd combination: a California surfer dude contemplating how, as Socrates said, "Suffering leads to wisdom." But Karnazes's self-motivation is utterly intriguing, and it's impossible to read this memoir without wanting to go out and run a marathon yourself.--Erica Jorgensen
This is an inspiring book and it is also well written and easy to read.
Dean Karnazes has repeatedly pushed his body beyond limits that most of us would consider impossible, and in so doing shows us what we are capable of.
What I liked most about the book is how this guy keeps trying, even when things seemed so bad.
