Review: Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

User Review  - Phil Szomszor - Goodreads

A 2 star for quality of writing: the style was just too full of hyperbole for me. That and it was very choppy. Another reviewer said it was like a collection of articles strung together, which is ... Read full review

User Review  - William Crosby - Goodreads

Occasionally fascinating account of the Tarahumara and of ultra running. Does tend to hyperbole and strains for metaphors. But, if you are truly interested in that people, there is not a lot on them ... Read full review

User Review  - Connie - Goodreads

As a runner who runs for relaxation, nature and discipline, I really despise people who make running into a big deal. That's why I prefer Murakami's approach: humble, thoughtful and written for all audiences (not just a "hidden tribe" of "superathletic" runners). Read full review
