I am pretty sure that this book was one of the most highly anticipated running books of 2014. Seriously. At least amongst the runners I know.
For months, The Oatmeal has been sharing snippets of it. A whole race was developed around it that sold out, but when a second day was added it ALSO sold out. And then they added a virtual race (which I signed up for, but haven't done my miles yet...gotta get on that).
So - I was excited to include a copy of it on one of my recent Amazon orders.
This is a super quick, super fun read. I was a little disappointed, however, in that I feel like I had pretty much read it all before it arrived - thanks to the massive blanketing of excerpts before publication. There wasn't much new in there. It didn't make it any less funny and I know I will read this over and over, but it would have been nice to have more new material.
Also - the book took me 20 minutes to read so even if you are a slow reader or don't have much time - you'll be able to finish it fast.
