My most recent book was Finding Ultra by Rich Roll. This piece was an inspirational autobiography. Rich has burst onto the scene over the last few years as an incredible endurance athlete and brilliant podcast host. But before these success he battled addiction, struggled in the world of Law, and lived a sedentary lifestyle that left him 50 pounds overweight struggling to breath at the bottom of a staircase on the eve of his 40th birthday.
Rich made a decision to change his life. He spent 100 days in rehab to get a grip on his battle with alcohol. He began exercising regularly. He switched from eating a Standard American Diet to adopting a plant-based diet. These pillars created a foundation to a better, healthier lifestyle that has allowed him to flourish.
This book details Rich's life growing up as a loner and being bullied. He takes you from his first drink to his last. You witness his battle as an alcoholic from his days in college through multiple DUI's. You'll experience the ups and downs of his work in the field of Law. Then, as he gains control of his life, you will see his beautiful marriage as well as epic adventures into Ultraman and Ironman races.
