I have recently been following a schedule of reading my way through an excellent book or watching a good documentary or true film involving some of the greatest sportsmen and inspirational stories i've seen. I was wondering what other people would recommend as good reads, watches etc.

In the way of books i have read:
Sam Sheridans - Fighters Heart - Excellent book, love reading these sorts of storytelling about fighting and factual things.
Lance Armstrongs - Its not about the bike: My journey back to life - Currently reading this and enjoying it so far.

Films/Documentaries i've watched:

Prefontaine - Steve Prefontaine film about his life
Without Limits - Again a Prefontaine film with a bit of a different twist
Pumping Iron - Arnie documentary - Classic piece of film
De franco strong - crazy gym workouts from a famous gym
National Geographic - Superhuman Superstrong
Human Body Pushing the limits
Tyson film - The new one out recently
On the Ropes - Classic boxing documentary - Nominated for an oscar i think
Raging Bull
Rudy - True story about a resilient kid etc. Good film though

Thats all i can think of off the top of my head, anyways my unwatched films have now run short and once i have finished the Lance Armstrong book i am at a loss for what to watch or read. Any suggestions that you have watched or read from experience?

I find reading these things or watching them helps me then focus on my own goals which are far short of anything in the films etc but sizeable to me at the minute.
