Praise for The Longest Fall
The Longest Fall is a great read for coaches and runners. Throughout the story, Krinsky reminds us why our sport is special. The reader is reminded the value of teamwork in an individual sport and all the challenges we face trying to attain our goals. Once you open the book you are on the course and “BOOM!”, you are captured by the story! –Eric Yost, Cross Country Coach
The Longest Fall is more than a running book; it is a book about life. It is a book about the bond that is formed between teammates, especially when dealing with terrible tragedy. Runners and non-runners will both find inspiration in overcoming heartbreak and triumphing over impossible odds. The book is beautifully written and the descriptions of running routes and parks in New York made me feel like I was there. –Runner’s Resource
I purchased your book at the Long Island Marathon Expo last Saturday. I wanted to let you know how much I enjoyed it. The story captured the difficulties we face in life and how through perseverance and faith we can endure and succeed. –Tom M
I just finished reading your book and I am truly inspired to be a better runner. I could not put the book down and finished it in 2 days. It was such a great read. I could connect so well to the courses in the book since I run them on a regular basis like the characters in the book do. During this cross country season, I will think of the book and its amazing message it gives the people that read it. Thanks again. –Mark V, High School Runner
