Rezensionen
"Heart-stopping stuff. The world's #7 biggest sports bestseller."
--The Economist

"Fascinating"
--Sports Illustrated

"Full of euphoric highs. Rusisng with Karnazes [is] like setting up one's easel next to Money or Picasso... His book describes a journey into distance running that is much less about sweat than about the emotional terrain that unfolds at the frontier of endurance."
--The New York Times

"Buzz book."
--People

"[Karnazes'] spirited memoir... can help mere mortals who want to push past their perceived limits or simply jump-start their sedentary lives."
--Chicago Tribune

"There is clearly something Nietzschean in Karnaze's makeup...that whatever doesn't kill you makes you stronger.'
--Los Angeles Times

"Iron man Dean Karnazes is no mere mortal."
--Time

"Makes the extraordinary look easy."
--GQ

"An exhibition of unadulterated courage and mental and physical stamina [for] anyone who likes to read about ordinary people doing extraordinary things."
--Boston Globe

"Dean's masochism is a reader's pleasure."
--Publishers Weekly

"The perfect escapist fantasy for couch potatoes and weekend warriors alike."
--Kirkus Reviews

"Passionate"
--San Francisco Chronicle

"Eye-popping."
--Asociated Press

"[Dean is] like a comic book superhero who remains undercover by day, every bit the unremarkable family man."
--The London Daily Telegraph

"A real life Forrest Gump... [Karnazes] has pushed his body to limits that are beyond masochistic. They're inhuman."
--Newsday

"Ultrarunning legend."
--Men's Journal
