Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

While many of us sit behind a desk for eight or nine hours a day, Scott Jurek is running. A legend among hard-core runners, Jurek has fashioned a lucrative career as an ultramarathoner. He runs--and wins--grueling races in excess of 100 miles in a wide array of usually inhospitable environments: Death Valley, the Sierra Nevada mountains, Mexico's Copper Canyon. And he does it on a completely plant-based diet. In Eat and Run, Jurek tells the story of how an average Midwestern kid growing up on meat he caught or killed himself became a vegan elite athlete. The most inspiring proposal in this book--part memoir, part training guide, part vegan manifesto--is that running, like so many things in life, depends less on physical skill than on willpower. Runners of all levels, meat eaters, and vegans alike will be inspired to lace up their sneaks and hit the trails. --Juliet Disparte

Review

"The surprise here isn't that Scott Jurek knows a lot about nutrition—I especially love his "Holy Moly Guacamole" recipe. Or that he ran prodigious mileage to prepare for his many ultramarathon victories. More impressively, we discover that Jurek studied many of the great philosophers, and used their lessons to focus his running. In pursuing the mental side of endurance, Jurek uncovers the most important secrets any runner can learn." —Amby Burfoot, winner of the 1968 Boston Marathon and author of The Runner’s Guide to the Meaning of Life

"What a triumphboth Scott Jurek's life and this one-of-a-kind book. I've seen Scott in action as he defies unimaginable challenges, and thanks to this breathtakingly personal account, I finally understand how he does it. He rebuilt himself literally from the inside out, and the result is a man—and a story—unlike any other." —Christopher McDougall, best-selling author of Born to Run

"This is the inspiring story of an inspired man. Scott Jurek's phenomenal success as an ultramarathoner demonstrates that meat and other animal foods are not necessary for optimum health, strength, and endurance." —Andrew Weil, M.D. author of Spontaneous Happiness and 8 Weeks to Optimum Health
