Strengths: really explores the culture and background of a fascinating yet little known aspect of british life
Overall: having recently ran my first two fell races, I found the book temendously readable with a wealth of background and information about fell running. makes you realise just how extraordinary some of these people are. Although I'm well to the back of any field made me feel proud to be in the same races as some of these legends. All my running mates are now clamouring to read it. It probably won't help you run a fell race, apart from inspiring you in the first place, but then that wasn't the point of the book, absolutely Fantastic !
