Fred sanders did a fantastic job reading this captivating story. I found myself more and more excited to read/listen to it each time I had to pause. This book and its contents dominated my conversations for the duration of the read and weeks after. The story is so intriguing and the information so interesting I would recommend this book to people who have never exercised in their lives. It was so much fun.
I've done some running but never cared for it.....like lifting weights....not an end ...just a means....but this yarn is transcendent. ...it's a great story and packed with profound sports knowledge. ...6 stars
Maybe as a written book that allows you to read at a glance and skip passages, it may be a bearable text. 20 chapters in it and nothing scientific appears to pop up about running technics.
An amazing story filled scattered with facts and lessons learned. I have never been so glued to a story in my life. Truly a gem that I have already recommended to others!
What a cool story, mixing action and adventure with some culture and science, all the while presenting a fascinating cast of characters... I am inspired to learn to run better and to one day visit the Copper Camyons of Mexico...

Inspirational, Funny, Real, Amazing! One of the top 10 of the 100+ I've listened to. If you haven't listened or read this book yet, what on Earth are you waiting for?
I'm not going to confess that tears of excitement came out on the second to last chapter, but I will say that this guy is most likely unable to write a boring email! So amazing, extremely intriguing, and inspiring! I've never read a book twice, but I will definitely read this again, starting today (I finished it today).

I loved it!! It was a bit tricky to follow at times, but I loved it. I'm going to listen to it again.
