No one writes about training as well as John.
No one can write about the race as well as John.
Most of the book was an average 5 or 6. But the chapters with training and races again hit it out of the park. A decent 8 overall from me. Not as good as the 11 for ‘Once a runner’, but fairly good nonetheless. (Everything on a 10 point scale)
John/Quenton takes a jab at Hemmingway in the book. I wish he’d taken some inspiration from Hemingway — cut the first section shorter, used shorter sentences and simpler words. Would’ve made the book more accessible to many more than the running-crazy.
