If you liked "Born to Run"...get this book!!!

It is a real person with a real life story. It isnt all happy endings and wonderful times. Scott has an amazing drive, and strong need to run, but we see that he is just a human too. So there is bad, good, and even harsh. I laughed out loud quite a few times, and cried quite a few as well, but I felt as though I was on the journey with him. I have even more respect for him after this book than I did after "Born to Run", which is where I learned about Scott. I have followed Scott since I read that book, and have enjoyed his career, and I find him very inspirational.

I was amazed by his candor, and ability to talk about some of the personal things he covers. It truly makes me ADMIRE him all the more.

If you liked "Born to Run", you will like this book. Please remember it is a personal memoir, not a bunch of different people's stories as in BtR. Although you do get to meet all of those characters from Scott's point of view.

I highly recommend this book!!!

OH...one more thing...Alot of the vegan receipts at the end are great!!! I went out and bought the hard copy for a cook book!!!

Great next step after "Born to Run"

This is a wonderful book, a very personal account of life and running by Scott Jurek. Having read Born to Run I was keen to know more about what running, and what something as extreme as an ultramarathon meant to those who participated and were passionate. Scott gives an intimate account of what running has brought him, how the physical challenge stretched his mind and touched his soul, this I really appreciated. He also gives plenty of practical information; running tips, training guidance and then his food philosophy and recipes making for a very wholesome read. Highly recommended! The only aspect that I found a little jarring was the narrator, it took me time to adapt to his narration, which at times I found quite aggressive. Having said this it was not a poor performance and just took some getting used to.

one of the better ultramarathon books

most people looking at this book have likely read dean karnazes "ultramarathon man" or one of his other books. while dean makes himself sound like a tough guy, he's no match for scott jurek.

the story of how scott started in the sport, changed his diet, went through a spiritual journey and made it all the way to the top is truly remarkable. if you're a marathoner but looking to up your game or take on a new challenge, this one will really open your mind.

This book changed my life

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Scott Jurek is a highly competitive endurance athlete who also comes across as transparent, humble, and helpful. His story is interesting, and some of the training and nutritional ideas have helped me dramatically. I loved this book and would recommend it to anyone.

Great memoir, a must "read" for runners

If you could sum up Eat and Run in three words, what would they be?

Great context and in-depth look at one of the stars of Born to Run. Very much enjoyed the nutritional insights.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Quincy Dunn-Baker?

Someone who wasn't so abrasive in his reading style. Sometimes I felt like the reader made Scott seem like an angry guy with a big chip on his shoulder...very different from the spiritual vegan discussions at the end of each chapter. It was a little jarring.

Insiring read for vegans and athletes

Any additional comments?

This book was very inspiring to me, as I'm an aspiring raw vegan and runner. I have no desire to be a marathon runner, but hearing the author's story of becoming an *ultra" marathon runner inspired me to go further in my own daily runs. I also felt so inspired to continue learning about raw food. I love dedication of this guy.

I only left out a star because the narration was a little over dramatic at times. NOT a deal breaker at all. I just resigned myself to let it go when I noticed it. This is a very inspiring book.

Human Endurance

A fantastic story of human endurance and what can be accomplished. My favorite line, which I tell myself all the time now is "not all pain is significant". Then I just keep running, or holding that yoga pose, or pumping that weight. It is easy to be a lazy, painless athlete, which leads to mediocre results forever.

Sometimes you just got to do stuff!

I go it. I liked it, and I'll listen to it again. Felt very real, the childhood stories, the hard training yards, the focus, the competitiveness, the ups and downs and so on. Very listenable.

It was very worthwhile to hear a success story based on hard consistent work.

But, whatever happened to Dusty? I'd like to read that as a sequel!

Long awaited and very satisfactory book

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

If you're a runner, you've probably heard of Scott Jurek by reading Born to Run. While not a sequel to McDougall's book in any way, Jurek's book takes you closer to the real thing by letting you know how it feels from an actual ultra runner's pespective. It is well written, full of interesting stories, technical tips and a very good read (listen) altogheter.

What did you like best about this story?

Scott Jurek is an exceptionnal athlete. Yet, he is so honest and down to earth that I could relate with his stories, even tough I only am a "normal" marathonner. The stories make you want to push yourself beyond your limits - if only to find out how far you can go. I know it did help me run farther and better.

What does Quincy Dunn-Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration is quite good. I'm not sure why Jurek did not decide to read it himself.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

This is a book I listened to while running. I really recommend it! I couldnt stop which help me keep going on longer runs.

Any additional comments?

Of course, some of the stuff here you've already heard before. With Born to Run and Dean Karnases' books, a lot has been said about Ultras. Yet, Scott Jurek's take on the subject is as unique as his talent. I really recommend you pick it up.

great even for non-runners

What did you love best about Eat and Run?

I love everything about it, but especially the tips at the end of each chapter.

What other book might you compare Eat and Run to and why?

Barbara Kingsolver's 'Animal, Vegetable, Miracle' As they both blend food consciousness with life stories.

What about Quincy Dunn-Baker’s performance did you like?

He was funny, the inflections were all right on.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

We laughed a lot, cried a little. I read it partially on my long run days...his story makes you unable to give up at like mile while he is running 100, and partially on a family road trip- everyone liked it.

Sehr interessant und SYMpathisch

Ich fand das Buch im Gegensatz zum Rezensenten vor mir super sympathisch. Leider hat mich das "unsympathisch" recht lange davon abgehalten, mir dieses Hörbuch herunterzuladen. Letztendlich finde ich das Buch sehr berührend und inspirierend; ich habe auch viel Neues daraus gezogen, wenn es für mich auch nie in Frage kommt, einen ULTRA zu laufen. Ein Muss für jeden Läufer und an Biografien und Motivation interessierten Leser. Außerdem sehr viel Wissenswertes für die an der veganen Ernährung Interessierten. Ich gebe diesem Buch das Prädikat: höchst lesens(hörens!)wert.

Interessant und unsympathisch

Scott Jurek ist ein faszinierender Läufer, der unglaubliche Höchstleistungen in seiner Karriere vollbracht hat. Dieses Hörbuch erzählt seine Geschichte, es ist eine Autobiographie und zeigt dem Hörer denke ich ein ziemlich unverstelltes Bild von Jurek.

Ultra-Läufer sind natürlich eine eigene Spezies Mensch: Wer läuft sonst schon 100km am Stück, 2 Tage hintereinander, durch die heisseste Wüste der Welt o.ä.? Was ich interessant an dem Buch fand ist zweierlei.

1. Die Genese Scott Jureks als Ultra-Läufer. Er beschreibt sein Leben ziemlich ungeschminkt, die einfachen Verhältnisse, aus denen er stammt und was ihn zu seinen Höchtleistungen angetrieben hat. Dem muss man Respekt zollen und man hat in keinem Moment das Gefühl, dass Jurek seine Kindheit als schwerer darstellen will, als sie wahrscheinlich gewesen ist. Es ist ein Pluspunkt des Buchs.

2. Durch das ganze Buch hindurch merkt man, dass Jurek ziemlich simpel gestrickt ist und super-ehrgeizig. Klar, sonst gewinnt man auch nicht 7x die Western States 100 hintereinander, aber ich habe die ganze Zeit geschwankt zwischen der Bewunderung, die ich jemand zolle, der komplett bis an seine Grenzen geht, und dem absoluten Killerinstinkt, der diesem Hyperehrgeiz zugrunde liegt. Nur so kann man wahrscheinlich solcherlei Rennen gewinnen, nicht nur an ihnen teilnehmen, aber es wirkt auf mich abstoßend (und ich bin wahrscheinlich selbst eher erfolgreich und auf der kompetitiven Seite des Lebens). All seine Lebensphilosophien sind eine Melange aus Ost und West, Mom&Pop-Weisheiten und ewigen Plattitüden. Aber sie bringen ihn zu Höchstleistungen, für die man vielleicht genau diese simplifizierte Denkeise benötigt.

Das Buch ist gut gelesen, der Sprecher hat genau die Art kompetitiver, amerianischer Stimme und dem entsprechenden Sprachduktus, der zu dem Buch passt.

Mein Fazit ist, dass es mich ein Stück weit wieder davon abgebracht hat, einen Ultra laufen zu wollen, da ich einen solchen Mindset wie Jurek nicht für erstrebenswert halte. Da beschränke ich mich lieber auf Strecken bis hin zum Marathon, vielleicht macht einen diese Einsamkeit auf Ultras besonders sonderbar...

Alles in allem sehr hörenswert, auch wenn mir allerlei nicht gefallen hat, was ich gehört habe. Aber dementsprechend authentisch ist dieses Buch.

Mehr als sympathisch!! Jurek ist ein Suchender

Mich hat ebenfalls lange die negative Rezension (Stichwort: Unsympathisch) abgehalten das Hörbuch zu kaufen. Ich bin froh, dass ich mich trotzdem (und wegen der zweiten Rezension) für das Buch entschieden habe. Denn Eat and Run ist eines der besseren Bücher, das ich in letzter Zeit gelesen/gehört habe (und ich konsumiere ca. 70 Bücher aus den verschiedensten Sparten pro Jahr). Eat and Run ist so viel mehr als ein Sportbuch und vor allem keine Angeberei oder Selbstbeweihräucherung. Jurek ist ein Suchender; er ist blitzgescheit und sehr reflektiert. Ein angenehmer Mensch. Es hat mir große Freude bereitet seine Geschichte zu hören. Jetzt freue ich mich auf “North”!

THE ultra running book - truly inspiring

To most of you runners this might be quite old hat already, but I just finished 'Eat & Run' by Scott Jurek as an audiobook while running an easy tapering round at The Olympiapark in Munich. Interestingly exactly tonight a 24h race took place at that location. A couple of month ago I wouldn't have understood why anyone would ever join a competition like this. Not that I plan to participate in 24h races or ultra marathons any time soon, I still understand and respect every single person who is trying to find his/her limits of the body (first) and the mind (much later) through running longer or faster than they ever thought they could. This book was truly inspiring.
