EAT and RUN debuts at #7 on The New York Times Hardcover NonFiction Bestseller List

In the first week of publication Eat & Run hit #7 on the The New York Times Hardcover Nonfiction List.  It was also #10 on the Combined Print and E-Book Nonfiction List.

The New York Times Sunday Book Review column, Inside the List by Parul Sehgal says:

THE RUNNER: From wicked women to very virtuous men. Scott Jurek makes his debut on the hardcover nonfiction list this week — his book “Eat and Run,” written with Steve Friedman, comes in at No. 7 — but he’s been prominently featured in two best sellers: Timothy Ferriss’s “4-Hour Body,” which spent 41 weeks on the hardcover advice list, and “Born to Run,” by Christopher McDougall, which is entering its 63rd week on the paperback nonfiction list. Jurek’s memoir about going from “a shy kid with high blood pressure” to an “ultramarathoner” — an elite athlete who competes in foot races longer than 26.2 miles — is interspersed with recipes and running tips. Joan Rivers wouldn’t approve, but Jurek argues that his plant-based diet accounts for his astonishing records: he has won the Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run seven straight times, and he recently set a new American record for running the most miles in 24 hours (165.7). PaceGillian Flynn, but that’s scary.”
