The Road to Character was the tenth book of 2016, which I enjoyed.

The Road to Character seeks to understand, through review of historical examples like Dwight Eisenhower and George Marshall, the ideal road to character.  The book summarizes several very well known individuals in history.  It then discusses the people and situations which developed these great individuals into very well charactered examples.

The Road to Character has all the elements I routinely enjoy in a book.  It has well-written examples, reviews of numerous characters throughout history, and explains all the people that contributed to the success of the person.  I think that The Road to Character does this part quite well; documenting the team and mentors which led to great success.

The Road to Character is an excellent read.

For book forty seven of 2015, I enjoyed the book Eat and Run: My Unlikely Journey to Ultramarathon Greatness.

This is probably the best book I’ve read this year.  The author, and ultrarunner, Scott Jurek shares how he lives, trains, eats and fuels, and his strategies and methods of his life.  His life has included winning numerous Ultramarathons and setting significant records in the ultramarathon sport.  I had the book Eat and Run on my to-read list even before Scott Jurek set the run-through record for the Appalachian Trail.

If you’re a runner, this is a must read!  If you’re someone that searches for greatness… herein, Eat and Run, lies the details of one great individuals method.
