Quote Of The Day
“Symmonds deserves credit as an author. Symmonds doesn’t dawdle and long stories are reserved only for pivotal moments in his life, such as winning the 2008 Olympic Trials. That makes the book easy to follow and keeps the reader interested …”
“(Symmonds) holds little back, explaining how he spent much of his early 20s partying and chasing women. After making the Olympic team in 2008, he spent the remainder of the Trials doing easy runs, drinking and having sex. Sex comes up a lot, and while Symmonds’ honesty and openness is one of the book’s strengths, he goes overboard when it comes to his love life (the final pages of the book basically read as a personal ad). Symmonds’ sexual conquests don’t come across as bragging, but for the most part they’re simply not that interesting.”
