Really enjoyed this book. Although I am not a runner, it kept me engaged and may motivate me to take running more seriously.
Best book ever.
Not just the best running book but inspirational and full of great stories. Loved it.
By Hustle Jay
Loved the book, initially listened to the audiobook. It was intriguing and health conscious. There are so many interesting people out in the world relative to sports and health and finding solutions. Forwarded a few tips to friends and family regarding flat foot and the arch in your feet. Very informative read
What a great read
By Gal in Waders
Did I think this book was going to make me a great runner? Hardly. I'm 62, doing what I can for those who can no longer do things for themselves. The hook was learning the secret of a Mexican tribe of long distance runners who ran nearly invisible trails nearly barefoot for nearly no reason beyond the joy of running. Then I realized I had stumbled across what really good writing in the 21st century looked like.
What an adventure. I just finished reading Scott Jurek's book, so I did need to adjust to a different writing style, but it didn't take long to get drawn into this story involving some pretty amazing people.
Read it twice!
I read first time absolutely locked into every chapter. Such a great story, had to chew on it a while then go back and read it again. It was even better the second time!
Born to Run

Excellent book....great story
Wasn't sure I was going to like it, but soon it became hard to put down... The author does digress a bit with side stories, of each character, but they are also very interesting. Learned a lot about running and evolution and will have me thinking differently the next time I go out for a jog. Very enjoyable, as I love reading about other people's lives that are not mainstream. Wish I could meet some of these people, as I find them all amazing.
