    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.

    Corey says: "Amazing read - even for non-runners"
    "Too much exaggeration"
    Overall

    It is hard to know where the exaggeration begins and ends... Shorting out a car engine because a live crab was thrown under the hood... lifeguards running naked on a family beach and some how not getting fired... running 30 miles at night with nothing but fruit and nuts to eat... drinking to the point of sickness the night before a marathon... the list goes on and is too much.

    I am a runner but did not find this book to be very inspirational, but instead rather boring.
