Whilst many are familiar with Rich’s story, this is the whole story, warts and all. He tells of his immense talent as a swimmer, how alcohol came into his life at Stanford and its impact on his potential for swimming superstardom. What follows is story after story of drunkenness, of letting people down and even a failed marriage that just don’t seem to match up with the Rich we’ve come to know through the podcast. His near collapse on the stairs at age 39 is the trigger that starts with a juice cleanse and climaxes with Epic 5- 5 Ironman distance triathlons on each of the islands of Hawaii in under a week. A beautifully written memoir that challenges all of us to reconsider our true potential.
