This is an amazing book! If you like jogging or if you want to start jogging this is probably the best motivational book ever written on this subject matter. This is the story of a lost tribe, jogging's history and why jogging is so important for us humans. Sure Doug may not sound that interesting but it really is!
Great story, great information, and a narrator that's easy to listen to. It's gotten me really excited about running and I've never cared to run.
I am not a runner, but I thoroughly enjoyed learning about those who do run for the joy of it. I may have to become a neighborhood runner after listening to this book.
This book was an absolute joy!
* The details of the remote tribe
* The effects of running on the body and the feet.
* The superathletes running for hundreds of miles
* Training barefoot and the scientific benefits
I enjoyed the entire book!
Yes, because it was an amazing, inspiring read.
Learning in order to be a good runner, you need to give up the idea that you're running to be skinner, or better. You need to run because you love it.
The way he really got into the book and portrayed the authors ideas
To love running for what it is -- a break from real life and what we were born to do.
This book was so good I'm making my boyfriend read it. It really inspired me to hit the road again, but not to make myself skinner, as I've ALWAYS tried before, and then failed. I started running again just to see if I could love it for what it was. Sure enough, I truly do.
This book was great! It kept me entertained and super excited and motivated to run during my training! I loved it and will recommend it to my whole family!!!
I was only able to get through the first 2 chapters, but the author had already surpassed my limit for BS. Much of the information about running and the Indian's lifestyle was wrong. It is pointless to go on. Look at the Amazon reviews on the book, particularly the most helpful low ranking reviews. Based on the overall reviews, I believe the story is good, but it is mostly fiction.
The narrator was good.
