    Couldn't agree more. Excellent book. Easy to pick up and read a chapter and get inspired just like 40 years ago.

    Yup. He had better years in '65 and '66--biggest success was winning the '66 European Champs marathon in Budapest.

    This book includes the chapter on Hogan from Clarke's The Lonely Breed. That book is really superb--it had a huge impact on me when I read it in HS just after it came out. It's a shame it's so hard to find now...

    What, 8 copies aren't enough?
    Ho, ho. ho.....

    I've ordered from them. I occasionally go there if I'm looking for something that I know was published in the UK and I can't find on amazon.com.

    Well, yes, absolutely, but I've learned to ignore such personal insults.

    Jim Hogan, The Irishman Who Ran for England (Currach Press, 2008) and Ronnie Delaney, Staying the Distance (O'Brien Press, 2006). The Delaney book looks particularly good, with many illustrations.

    Any other recent historical publications we should know about?
    An oxymoron perhaps??
