"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

To finish, it's not about technical skill, physical strength, or superior equipment - it's your ability to endure and persist when you're unbelievably tired, sore, and hungry. Finishing doesn't take mastery of the physical, it requires the complete command over your mental agility and resilience.
This book is quite interesting and, for $3.99 would recommend first timers to consider purchasing it. It'll at least give you a starting point of reference of what to expect and a general plan. The MR340 discussion boards are also a treasure trove of knowledge as well.
Be aware however, that no book can prepare you for the mental endurance it requires to complete this race.
If you are considering a run on the MR-340 or just would love to read about it, this is the book.
Only gripe; I wish I had saved it to my computer, instead of my tablet, as I would like to print out the tables and other various important info for binders. I am sure that I can figure out how to reverse the process (tablet to computer).
Stephen:- I hope to meet you in '14 on the river.
