    Humans evolved over the millennia to become one of the most exceptional distance-running species on Earth. So why are injuries so common? Are our shoes to blame, or is it a question of running form, training, or poor diet? In this groundbreaking book, Peter Larson and Bill Katovsky explore the reasons why runners experience injuries and offer potential solutions to the current epidemic of running-related injuries.

    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His voice itself wasn't that bad, once I got used to it, but what was completely inexcusable was saying "casual" when the authors clearly wrote "causal." I also suspect he mispronounced several of the scientists names, which is kind of important, since a large part of the book is an overview of scientific research.


    Any additional comments?

    This was a great book, but I wish I'd gotten the print version. The history of shoe design and discussion of gait was much more interesting than it sounds, and the only negative aside from the narrator is that the last chapter is inexplicably devoted to the paleo diet - totally unrelated to anything that came before it, and it struck me as being out of the blue.
