Readers Praise Running In The Rain
Paul has written a book not only to inspire us to get out and get things done, but also to give us a framework that we can use for our own circumstances. His experience and expertise are as wide as anyone could imagine and he draws on it all."Sir Robert FultonFormer Commandant General Royal Marines
Running in the Rain had me engrossed from page one. Paul writes in a manner that feels like he is having a candid conversation with you. This book will have you look at how busy you truly are, as well as why the 'to do list' may be holding you back. It is a much-needed and highly-recommended read in today's hectic ‘always-on’ society.Paolina AllanFormer Professional Triathlete, Top-Ranked Masters Road Cyclist
The more I read of this immensely enjoyable book the more blessed I felt – why? Because I was reminded how fortunate I am to work in an environment where I am surrounded by individuals who snatch every opportunity to ‘run in the rain’. Working with those who have incurred life-changing injuries resulting in paralysis and limb loss but who have positively reconfigured their lives and grasped the future is deeply humbling but also unsettling – do I approach my life with the same positive mindset?
In a similar vein, Paul Weston prompts us to ask ourselves whether we are maximising life’s opportunities, and he presents a framework and a practical set of tools to help us both recognise and realise our potential. He achieves this through a richness of story-telling made possible by the fullness of his own life experiences – son, husband, Royal Marine, athlete, musician, businessman. Here is someone we want to listen to and who we want to learn from as he presents us with an invaluable guide to understanding our personal and professional selves and how we can maximise the gift of life.David PondChief Executive, Great Britain Wheelchair Rugby
As an avid reader rarely do I read a book that seamlessly integrates personal and professional lessons one chapter at a time. Through Paul’s unique experiences, “Running in the Rain” exceptionally helps elevate your best self to the next level with simple, yet crucial tools that will make the most arduous of tasks pale in comparison to the feeling of true fulfilment once achieved.
