I enjoyed this book but more importantly have found that it has drastically changed my desire and ability to run. At 6'5" 250 I thought that running would just never be my preferred activity. Like the author, I have had a variety of injuries every few months despite attempts to run on trails with the right shoe/orthotic and limiting my runs to every other day. Since changing to a ball of foot striker, I am running 1-2 hours daily without pain and have mixed in running barefoot, with Vibram 5 fingers, and Newton shoes and really enjoying the trails without pain. I can't wait to move on to some longer distances and was truly inspired by the book.
