I have unconditional love for this book, if that is possible. I credit the author, Rich Roll, with giving me courage to take the leap into following my passion which, in my case, is working in the wellbeing space.
Rich takes us through his own transformation from college swimmer to alcoholic, overworked, overweight, and stressed lawyer to ultra-fit, admirably healthy, plant eating, endurance athlete. Rich does not sanitise his low moments or his rehabilitation experiences. Reading Finding Ultra, as a non-addict, did not diminish its relatability because ultimately it is a story of human triumph, of how a man reinvented himself and found his passion.
Finding Ultra is a life-affirming book if there ever was one.
