User Review  - Adam - Goodreads

McDougall is a terrible writer. The book itself is an extension of a Men's Health magazine article, and it shows. The topics he covers are interesting, but he writes in a self-consciously muscular and ... Read full review

User Review  - Dev - Goodreads

A bit breathless at times as the author strains to make his case for the evolutionary need to run and how it may have been the difference between us and the neanderthals. He treads close to a lot of ... Read full review

I picked this book up to read more about the Tarahumara, the Mexican Indian ultra runners who live deep in the Sierra Madre in total isolation. It was written like a magazine article, more about the ... Read full review
