April and May 2022 reading list and notes

Recommended: a remarkable exposé of the situation in Xinjiang.

It’s never good to apologise on blogs so I won’t go there — but it has been a while since I posted. A flurry of reading lists is coming up as I get back up to date.

April 22

  • The Perfect Police State by Geoffrey Cain
  • Very Bad People by Patrick Alley
  • From Marathon to Ultra by Jonathan Cairns
  • Stranger Faces by Namwali Serpell
  • Finding Ultra by Rich Roll
  • The Lost Art of Running by Shane Benzie
  • Failure is an Option by Matt Whyman
  • Training Essentials for Ultramarathons by Jason Koop
  • Ultra Success by Anthony Rogan

No prices for guessing my interest this month. No less than 7 books about running and ultras… The other two by Cain and Alley are also highly recommended.
