I think B&N has the wrong Michael Connelly listed for the bio.... the one they mention is a writer from Philly, where as the bio on the book has Mr. Connelly as a life long resident of Boston who works in a bank there!!
The book is FANTASTIC! A great read and very entertaining. A mile by mile account of the worlds premiere marathon with great history woven throughout the chapters. Makes you almost want to try marathon!

This was a great book. It was very informative about the Boston Marathon's unique position in the sport and was also very inspiring for anyone who has run or is considering running a marathon. Connelly did an excellent job of capturing the essense of the race!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
