    Why we think it’s a great listen: Want to join the “superhumans”? Luckily you don’t have to run to catch up with them, thanks to McDougall’s and Sanders’ inspiring (and motivating) journey through history, science, physiology, health, entertaining characters and unlikely friendships. Full of incredible characters, amazing athletic achievements, cutting-edge science, and, most of all, pure inspiration, Born to Run is an epic adventure.

    "Awesome! Throw out your shoes!"
    Overall

    I really enjoyed this book at many levels. I found the core story of McDougall and the race very interesting, and the side material about the development of the "running Man" theory very interesting (but I am admittedly into science books and stories as a former biohemist, so not everyone migth find this as intersting). I have spoken to a few others who found McDougall's style a bit plodding, and I found some segments a bit long, but overall, the message and tone of the book is great, and I consider it a very worthy listen. And afterwards, you will probably do as I did, and throw out your Nikes, and buy a pair of Five Fingers. :^)
