An everyman kind of guy, Ben winningly convinces his loyal fans that they can get healthy, happy, and live the lives of their dreams."--Caitlin Boyle, author and founder of Operation Beautiful "A lot of people lose weight, but that's not the story with Ben. He personifies so much of what "Runner's World" stands for."--David Willey, editor in chief, "Runner's World". And Ben won. Ordinary people doing miraculous things--this is what Ben is about.

Depends on your background Scott Partenheimer Will you like this book? The answer to that depends on what kind of person you are.If you are a person who is overweight, looking for a lifestyle change, and has never heard of Ben Davis before, this is the book for you. You will enjoy Ben's story, you will enjoy his candid tone and his way of directly addressing the reader, and you will enjoy a lot of practical advice. Ben has been down in the trenches himself, and his personal story inspires an "anyone can do it" attitude. You will want to start running after reading this book, no matter how. A+ for effort, but F for substance What Ben Davis managed to accomplish is pretty darn impressive--from morbidly obese to triathlete in a pretty short time. Sadly, this book does little to reflect that journey, and provides even fewer hints for how to do it yourself. Caveat--I'm not familiar with his blog, so maybe that is more substantive.Of the 325 pages of the book, 100 pages are essentially blank: they're meant to be a 25-week training journal, but you'd be foolish to spend this much money for a hardback for that purpose. 50 or so pages are "training guides" for 5k-marathon. Good Story. Good Strategies. Was Expecting More. First off, let me say I admire and am inspired by Ben Davis. I got the see the viral video when it was just a few hundred views.I was moved. I cried.

I wanted to learn more about this man, his journey and how he got there.Here's the two big ideas from the book:1. Whatever you are doing in private that you don't want others to see (raiding the kitchen when all are a
