Reviews
"It is hard and frustrating--and ultimately inspiring--to read about how women have continually been dismissed throughout our sport's history. This book shows and credits so many of them, who hurdled roadblocks and continued to fight for their place. Better Faster Farther is a look behind the curtain that all women who love running and sport should read."--Kara Goucher, Olympic runner and New York Times-bestselling author of The Longest Race
