How often can you say that a book changed your life? For me, only one has -- this one. While I had started down the path of barefoot running before I read this book, this book has firmly set my course. Christoper McDougall has created a wonderful story from true events so riveting you'd swear this was fiction. By the middle of the book, I was already anxious to listen again, and so I did. I can only wish for a movie or documentary to reinforce the great information and drama this book provides.
I'm a long-time fan of Howard Stern and his crew so I was eagerly awaiting the release of this book. However, I was quite disappointed. The book is mostly uninteresting, disjointed, and fails to provide much insight at all to the Howard Stern production. There isn't even a conclusion nor any coverage of his relationship with Howard. Even his relationships with Fred and Robin aren't really fleshed out. The extra conversations in the audiobook with old friends while a good idea were horribly executed. Gary violates his own rule of don't ask "yes or no" questions over and over. Gary Baba Booeyed this book. Sorry Gary.
