  • Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

    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.

    Story

    I like running and in reading this book, I thought I was going to find out about how to run better or at least I thought that I was going to read a good story about a hidden tribe. None of this matterialised. The book drifts on and on with no focus and no real story to tell. I didn't finish it. Quite boring after a while, even though it was exciting for the first 2-3 hours... Pity!

    Story
    (65)

    In 1982, having sold his jazz bar to devote himself to writing, Haruki Murakami began running to keep fit. A year later, he’d completed a solo course from Athens to Marathon, and now, after dozens of such races, he reflects upon the influence the sport has had on his life and on his writing.

    I really liked this book. I have already read 1Q84 and the wind up bird chronicle which i loved. This book is both about running but also about Murakami s life as an author. A very original and innovative idea, like most of his books.
