  • Learnt nothing new but had a hell of a time while reading Definitely the most funniest book about running i ve ever read


  • The title of this book is brilliant In fact, it s the reason why it caught my eye and why I choose to read it.Comparing to it, the content is not so stellar, but still good and worth reading There is plenty of topics related to trail and ultra running The style is episodic I guess, half of the chapters have been previous blogposts.The book is split in two parts The first one is about trail running and I didn t find it much interesting anyone, who spent childhood in boy girl scout, or something s [...]


  • I am so glad this book exists I couldn t stop laughing Every runner looking to do an ultra or get into trail running could benefit from reading it.


  • Great introThis book is an easy and often humorous intro to a very monumental endeavor I recommend this easy read if you are new to ultra running and want to get a general survey of the sport From here pick up another title that is perhaps detailed.


  • Not as funny as I except but good for a few laughs filled with GREAT training info Definitely not your casual running book This book is really geared towards someone serious about entering the ultra world.


  • I cracked up a few times reading this I really liked the way it s written, but wish it went into detail in some of the chapters I ve never run a marathon, never mind an ultra, but this book got me to sign up for my first race a 5k with my 6 8 year olds in February I used to think marathon were crazy, but recently started running with my kids and we all love it Thanks to the author for an informative, funny and friendly take on trail running in general we only have one road where we live and the [...]


  • This book is not anecdotal type of book, or a personal journal about how running got him through a bad time It is truly just an instructional book on ultra and trail running.For a beginner, there is a lot of ideas to try out For the rest, there is some information in there, and a few ideas I hadn t heard of before.I did like it I would recommend everybody who runs to read it There is also a great section for pacers and crew members that should be read by everyone that will be doing that at some [...]


  • The casual approach to ultra runningif there is such a thing Jason is my favourite kind of teacher, one that makes the subject fun Ive run a few ultras and learned a lot the hard way, on the trail, so am always looking for new ideas and and angles to approach putting one foot in front of the other for 50 or 100 miles This book had plenty of tips And like the man sayse what you want, discard the rest That in itself is damn good advice One question does remain unanswered though do you catch the sq [...]


  • I really enjoyed this book As someone new to ultra running I felt like it gave a lot of good beginner s info without being condescending It got me excited about the community and made me laugh If you re looking for a serious training manual, this book isn t for you If you re looking for a fun introduction that will get you hooked on the mental side of undertaking an ultra, I would suggest giving this a read.


  • A must read for any trail runner runnerJason is funny, serious and honest His stories all provide great information and detail and he s very open that these are ideas that work for him They may not work for you I ve read many books that teach the only way to be a successful runner You will laugh and learn from this book and I highly recommend it whether you are a novice or advanced trail runner.


  • This book is a collection of fairly random tips for running ultras I enjoyed reading the book as I like any ultrarunning books there s not all that many out there as it s a fairly niche sport It s pretty basic, and most of the tips are fairly obvious The author is no Scott Jurek, and from what I gather is of a midpack runner, so if you re looking for a book that will help you win Western States, then perhaps this is not for you.


  • This book was slow in parts like about trails, weather, gear but very interesting and helpful in other parts I ve been running for 5 years and frequently run in trails I m also trained in wilderness first aid, so parts of the book were old news to me But, I am currently preparing for my first Ultra and the certainly was some useful information in here I m sure I will review this book every so often.


  • Very simple written book for all long distance runners There are described so many tips and experiences worth to know without to do the experience myself The book is targeted to normal runners, if there are such in long distance running From the literature point of view it is not really the best work, it remembers rather a blog than a book, but it is very easy and quick to read.


  • Great book filled with useful training tips brought about with brutal honesty Informative and often hilarious As the subtitle states this is a Trail Running, Ultramarathon and Wilderness Survival Guide for Weird Folks I fit into two of those categories and am planning on running an Ultra in the near future.


  • Don t do it because squirrel is a grabby little fellow and you are in a pretty vulnerable position doing a squad with your pants down Yes, this book is that useful Using no frills, Jason unveils several tips for ultra marathoning into the wild Feeling quite motivated to start working on my survival toolbox.


  • Entertaining and informative Some very good tips for running and life in general Funny, entertaining and serious The author provides helpful tips and guidelines that help you discover what may work better for you I will read from this author


  • Great short read I haven t laughed out loud so much reading a book in a long time yet in between the laughs is some useful information for trail and ultra runners I only wish it had been longer.


  • This book was very insightful when it came to challenges on the trail as well as helpful suggestions, restroom etiquette as well as countless others I ve been running for years prior to reading this and found it useful and entertaining.


  • This wasn t nearly as funny as I expected A few one liners here and there, but I guess it s hard to live up to a title like this one.It turns out that this is a relatively serious primer for newbie trail ultrarunners It s easy, fast reading Fun with some good tips along the way.


  • Great fun but still very informativestream of consciousness style guide to ultra running Laugh out loud funny at several points, and I bet the only running book out there to feature a 10 point guide to pooping in the woods.


  • I m no ultrarunner, but I found it extremely basic, common sense advice with no depth whatsoever Not very funny either.


  • A short book that had good info While much of it was geered towards someone with little previous running experience there was some useful tricks for experienced runners.





  • Love the humor and honesty You definitely don t get a fairy tale, just good info No smoke up your ass with this read Well done Jason




  • great book, once started, I couldn t let it go page by page great advice about trail running, but always leavened with some tongue in cheek humor.
