Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The incredible true story of the author's remarkable transformation, at the age of 40, from out-of-shape average Joe into one of the world's best endurance athletes.

On the eve of his 40th birthday, Rich Roll was in bad shape. His days were filled with work, stress, and junk food, and his nights were spent on the couch, remote in hand. Taking out the trash was the closest he came to exercise, and, at 50 pounds overweight, a walk up the stairs left him winded. He decided it was time to make a change. After undergoing a diet detox, adopting a vegan lifestyle, and pushing his fitness regimen to undreamed-of heights, he was profiled by Men's Fitness as one of the world's 25 fittest men. Among Roll's many jaw-dropping athletic feats: he completed the unprecedented "Epic 5" — five back-to-back Ironman-distance triathlons on five different Hawaiian islands in under a week — an achievement many said was impossible. This is the story of that remarkable transformation, a complete physical and spiritual rejuvenation that proves that anyone can "find ultra" if they know how.

Review:

"Rich Roll's Finding Ultra is a testament to the power of the human spirit to overcome any obstacle, break down walls, and redefine what's possible." John Brenkus, Creator and Host of ESPN's Sport Science and New York Times bestselling author of The Perfection Point

Review:

"If you liked Born to Run, you'll love Finding Ultra...one of the best books about health and fitness that I've ever read." Neal D. Barnard, MD, President, Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine

Review:

"Finding Ultra is the ultimate story of hope, perseverance and endurance against life's biggest challenges." William Cope Moyers, New York Times bestselling author of Broken: My Story of Addiction and Redemption

Review:

"Roll has accomplished amazing things, but it is his ability to draw inspiring and uniquely insightful lessons from his experiences that sets him apart from other extreme athletes. Finding Ultra is a fascinating read full of practical tips." Dean Karnazes, nationally bestselling author of Ultramarathon Man

Review:

"Finding Ultra is about a journey we all take as human beings, when we decide to pursue the impossible and live a life of mission. When I need to dig deeper, push harder, and find a little boost, Rich Roll is the guy who comes to mind. He is inspiration embodied." Sanjay Gupta, M.D., Emmy Award-winning Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN and New York Times bestselling author of Chasing Life and Cheating Death
