Great book from start to finish. Narrator added the icing to this cake! I didn't want the book to end and ended up finding actual pictures of the participants in the race as well as some of the original articles from the author on the web. What an inspirational story.
Great story and very thought provoking. I laughed a lot while listening to this book and it makes me want to run real distance.
I unexpectedly enjoyed this book. I'll listen to just about anything on the topic of running and found myself pleasantly surprised with this title.
I loved the story wrapped up with novel research and ideas. This book has changed the way I run and buy shoes for the better.
I really enjoyed this book and believe it will be responsible for a major resurgence of running again at the end of this decade. Kudos to Christopher McDougall for writing such a splendid tale!
Great book. Interesting insights on what running is to men and women. Great inspiration to achieveing one's goals and never giving up. I felt particularly identified with the story as my grandfather was born in Batopilas, Chihuahua.

Absolutely one of the best books I've read. You discover a great culture that still exists today, it is inspirational if you enjoy fitness and you find out about that shoes are the worst thing you can wear, while all the big shoe makers have ZERO science showing their benefit, on the contrary their own studies have shown shoes cause more injuries.
