Rich Roll is perhaps the worlds fittest man but this hasn’t always been the case. Rich’s early years were blighted by drugs and alcohol until his life spun out of control and he wound up in rehab at 31. On the eve of his 40th birthday, Rich was so unfit he was defeated by the simple act of climbing a flight of stairs. The next day, Rich decided he had to change. He put on his running shoes, and became a dedicated vegan. Only two years later, Rich took part in a 320 mile ultra triathlon. He surprised the endurance racing world not only by becoming the first vegan to complete the event and in doing so smashing myths about a vegan diet, but also by finishing in the top 100 males. This book charts Rich’s incredible transformation and inspires us by showing that with a change in mindset and dedication, anything is possible.

Instead, Tobias argues that friendly and pragmatic animal advocacy can diminish animal suffering in the fastest possible way.
