After reading “North”, I was keen on finding out more about Scott Jurek and read his previously published autobiography. While it’s a bit more self-promoting and even egotistical, his achievements are incredible and the path that led him there is captivating. What do you have to have experienced in order to be able to win so many tough 100 mile footraces? He explains it. The part “Eat” of this book came up short, in my opinion. Eating only plants is something that made him famous and routinely turns heads when people find out about his endurance abilities. I would have liked to find out more about that.
