    Meb Keflezighi is all about hope and second chances—starting with his very survival. The child of a small African country ravaged by a brutal war, Meb arrived in America with nothing but the clothes on his back, speaking no English and never having raced a mile. So how did he end up an A student, one of the most celebrated and respected athletes of his generation, and winner of the 2009 New York City Marathon?

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great work along the lines of Born to Run and Eat and Run. Extremely inspiring. Contrary to another reviewer's comments, there is no unnecessary content or repetition (unless you don't like to hear about faith and God, which are obviously integral to Meb's life and running ethic).

Part travelogue, part memoir, this mesmerizing quest to uncover the secrets of the world’s greatest runners - and put them to the test - combines practical advice, a fresh look at barefoot running, and hard-won spiritual insights.

    Story

    Inspiring story. Perhaps not as well crafted or engaging as Born to Run, but in the same genre. This will have a more narrow appeal than BTR, however. I don't see many non-runners being interested by the book. The subject is more than worthy of attention and has seemingly been ignored the mainstream sports media -- why are nearly ALL of the top distance runners from Iten, an obscure village in the mountains Kenya?? Their domination of distance running is like nothing the world has seen before. These athletes run speeds that were unimaginable just 15 years ago, and their running form is amazing to behold. Hopefully we'll see more books on this topic in the near future! The only negative is the quirky British narrator, who would be entirely out of place if it weren't for the fact that the author is british. At certain points, his style is almost robotic.
