I could, but my own values mean I don't, anyone who fails to put family first is not going to earn my respect

I was very touched by this fabulous read, very sad at the end. yes, we all know how his family was not put first, how most of the time he was very selfish, but im sure alot was to do with his childhood.

I`ve not finished it. I gave up finding the writing style suffered because the author didn`t know the subject (Tarrant). I might try and go back to it. I much preferred Jurek`s book and the Murikami one. Thought Born to Run was too full of US macho bullcrap, to coin a phrase.

Nick - yeah, I must read `Clouds`. Sounds good.

+1 for feet in the clouds, best running book I've read
-1 for Murikami, possibly the worst running book I've read...
can recommend barefoot runner , about Bikila

Quite liked both of those, Feet in the Clouds particularly, and even though I agree about Born to Run (possibly written with a tour of after dinner speaking in mind) I enjoyed it all the same
