    Pre-release reviews: 1) "I could not recommend this book more highly, especially to a runner and/or coach - I found myself relating to and getting totally immersed in both main characters, DJ and Mac, a high school runner and his mentor/coach, respectively. Paul, an accomplished author, does a terrific job fleshing these two (among others) out - leading to a suspenseful, amazing conclusion! I honestly could not put this (290+ pages) book down once I began reading it, I enjoyed it that thoroughly!" - Richard Dodd: Head Cross Country Coach at Franklin High School, Asst. Track Coach, Owner of Running's RAD, Race Director, Winner of 1983 Milwaukee Lakefront Marathon 2) "Paul Maurer's 'The Unforgiving Line' is more than a book about running and relationships. It is more than a story about a coach and one of his athletes. Maurer is able to immerse the reader in the often churning waters of emotional investment. As a long-standing coach of young runners, I have often found it... More > difficult to describe the complex nature of the synergy between athlete and mentor. Maurer does just that within the story of Mac and DJ, one that many of the best and most influential coach's within our sport can relate to and feel themselves present in. Maurer has crafted a narrative that draws the reading in through the eyes, into the mind and then the heart. The Unforgiving Line is an excellent read." -James Young: Brooks ID Coach, Coach at Positive Coaching Alliance, Head Coach at Chariots of Fire Running and track Club, Coach at USA Track and Field 3) "Everyone should buy this book. Great story about a great sport. Best book I have read in quite some time!" -Jason Davis: Head Cross Country and Track and Field Coach at Marietta College 4)"Finishing reading the unforgiving line and cannot wait to see what the ending is. Every day I look forward to coming home from work so I can get back to the story.There is so much relatable story lines for me as a runner, coach and family life. Excellent read and will in some form remind you of many of your experiences as a runner or coach." - Russell DeLap - Concordia University, Men's and Women's Cross Country Coach 5) “I just finished and recommend highly! A great story line about two track runners, generations apart. While from vastly different backgrounds, they share the same drive and Love of running and the freedom it brings. The last chapter had me riveted anticipating the outcome.” - Shawn Whalen, runner< Less
