User reviews about the book
Entertaining, but motivating.
The book is really hard to put down. Very encouraging and uplifting.
Loved every second of it
Wow! What a powerful book. If this book doesn't change something in you life then some is seriously wrong with your life.
If in fact after reading this book or any of the days with in this book you're not motivated to go out and do better then I don't know what to tell you I admire those guys so much because they put themselves to the test every day to be better to live each day as if it were their last I admired that. I just hope that I can achieve have that motivation as I once had when I was a younger man.

It reminds me of his rap album. Fun and laid back with some truth and meaning thrown in.
A funny & inspirational heartfelt story that will be a non-stop page turner. You'll be grumpy that you were interrupted during your reading. Yeah, it's that good! :D
In the way the story is described.
Makes me want to stop being a couch potato of a student.
(Have patience, keep reading, there's a point to this.)
-Was a couch potato w. flub. (20 lbs. to lose)
-Got a job.
-Became a gym rat and loved every minute of it. (Part self-motivated/part personal trainer.)
-Seriously considered joining the military; I was in pretty good shape.
-Joining didn't work out.
(unrelated to military).
-Became a couch potato again.
-Got a job (finaalllly!)
-Continued couch potato mode. Long commute. (Running after a bus/train was my exercise of the day.)
-Resigned from job.
-Now a Master's degree student back with my 20 lbs. of flub, lots of homework and no time to exercise. (Or so I think.)
Now with an important event to go to in a few months (Panic!), I want to get into shape.
Thanks to this book I am seriously contemplating taking up "jogging" with a recently retired Marine Corps Drill Sergeant that I know to prepare for the event.
Half of me thinks that I'm out of my mind, the other half of me thinks this'll be great (especially at the end).
Or it could be a new beginning for me just like it was for the author.
The author gained more than just a better bod and a faster race time.
He had a mind shift. A perspective and value change that extended throughout his whole life in ALL categories.
And isn't that we're all looking for? To break out of the monotony and improve ourselves? Yet to do it in an interesting way?
This book has some life lessons you can learn from, some sweet and lots of crazy moments (or what seems crazy at the time.). It shows both perspectives and if you can see it from the military perspective, you'll catch on faster.
Buy it. It'll be the best $10 you ever spent. And if you're lucky, the best life changing motivation you'll have.
Light and easy, unlike the workouts in the book
What a great read! Very easy to get lost in-- I found myself reading for an hour when I had planned to read for 30 minutes on more than one occasion.
I was sad when it was over!
Crazy, outrageous and inspirational. A must read for the athletic and or military type!
