User Review  - Alix - Goodreads

I was really taken by McDougall's 'Born to Run'. The narrative avoids the usual cliche of 'sports fiction' by taking the reader through an engaging adventure intertwined with evident thorough research ... Read full review

User Review  - Rebecca - Goodreads

Ok, so I loved the actual story of the book, and the people in it. I even enjoyed the writing. I just didn't like how much it skipped around from the Tarahumara to the science labs to the ... Read full review

This was a good read for sure. Several people noted that I should read it. I would say the same for anyone that has run, will run or does run. I thought the premise was interesting, the corporate ... Read full review

User Review  - Magila - Goodreads

Totally not what you expect - if you expect a story about an Amazonian tribe that has miraculous runners and their story. No, this is a book about the rise of the ultra-marathon, other endurance and ... Read full review

User Review  - Cami - Goodreads

This book had a lot of fascinating data, a lot of side stories, a lot of hearsay, and a lot of curse words. If you're a runner wanting to pick up some info, skip 170 pages and start at Chapter 25. If ... Read full review

User Review  - Greg Enloe - Goodreads

This was an interesting perspective. My wife has run over 30 marathons and many ultras, and I've crewed her many times. But this is crazy distances. The wife did a100k (62 mi) once, and started crying ... Read full review

User Review  - Krystal - Goodreads

Confession: I initially scoffed at this book when a friend recommended it. Ended up zealously swiping my way through it. In a way it reminds me of Chris Rock's 'Good Hair' documentary, where you begin ... Read full review
