My friends were right when they said I wouldn't want to put this down. An exceptional insight into human culture, history and evolution. The book is filled with deep research and amazing insights into the history of running. The stories will blow you away. Started on Saturday and finished on Wednesday. Great read/listen.
This book has easily become one of my favourite books ever. The story is amazing and I just wish it would last forever. Congratulations to Christopher McDougall but Fred Sanders also deserves great praise. I loved the narration.
Runner or not that was an excellent book. The narrator did an excellent job as well. Grateful for the experience of this book. Moving entertaining and educational.
Fantastic story. Running is no longer a boring sport where you zone out, but a way of life, a way of being human. I loved hearing each characters own challenges and sporting triumphs. Wow.
So, I had a lot of hype tossed at me about this book before I even got into it. But by minute 15, hands down, this was one of those rare moment when the hype is justifiable. This book is an amazing tale of human insurance, our species' capacity to explore, and how we wrestle the best out of ourselves even when we don't think there's anything left. It's a mantra for modern men and women who are trying to find a place in this chaotic world. Sometimes, to move forward, we must first look back. And, sometimes we have to do it at a run.
