Turia is an amazing woman. I had the privilege to see Turia speak and I bought her book for my daughter and downloaded the book on my kindle for myself. Once I started it, I could not put it down until I finished. This book will make you cry but it will also make you laugh and your heart will swell with pride for this amazingly tenacious woman who beat all odds to survive a horrific accident. If you feel in any way that life has dealt you a s****y blow, this book should inspire you to rise above it and take stock.
I could not put this book down. A truly inspirational story of a beautiful young woman who should never have been in the situation she was in - Racing the Planet should hang their heads in shame. I cried as I read the book and wondered how many of us could have survived and had the strength to go through everything she has since that dreadful day in 2011. I wish her and Michael every happiness for the future.
I read half the book the day I bought it and was finished in another couple of days. Fascinating reading. What an inspiration Turia is. Great to see her up and running again. Makes me wonder what I complain about! Great read for runners and non runners alike.
Great book. Really puts things into perspective, what an inspirational and determined woman! Made me really think about all the things I take for granted. It was also great to hear the stories of the other competitors involved and their heroic efforts to keep each other alive.
