The Perfect Mile by Neal Bascomb

Histories and biographies (not autobiographies) are my favorite genre of books.

The PERFECT MILE by Neal Bascomb recounts the 1950's epic chase across 3 continents by 3 remarkable runners of the once presumed impossible 4 minute mile.

There are many ways to read this book --- history, Roger Bannister's training methods, mental fortitude,, amateur athletics crazy rules, etc. All are good and credible reads.

However, in this book review, I read the book as a template for CHARACTER --- notably, the character of the secondary protagonist John Landy.

No matter how your read this book --- READ IT. This is a highly recommended history that will not disappoint.

See you at the Finish Line,
