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

User Review  - Ali - Goodreads

A fascinating book that I would never have picked up on my own. The writing was sharp and the metaphors apt. The characterizations were engaging (although most of these people were crazy). The book ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Kristen Merrill - Goodreads

Some chapters of this book kept me reading, others put me to sleep. I loved the tale of Caballo Blanco and the research behind natural running. The tales of the ultra runners were fascinating. This ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Kristine - Goodreads

A mixed bag. The structure reminded me somewhat of A Perfect Storm -- there's sort of a central narrative, but there are numerous related scientific and historical tangents, some fascinating, some not ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Arnţór Logi Arnarson - Goodreads

An interesting book, but a bit hyped. Has had a good impact on the running world in my view, by putting an emphasis on running technique and minimalism. But has a strong sensationalistic streak that ... Read full review

User Review  - Susan - Goodreads

I listened to this while I was walking and it made me almost think I could start off running and enjoy it like these ultrarunners do. I was even ready to take off my shoes and think my feet would feel ... Read full review

With a crazy plan to run a 5K for the first time at age 44, I did what any insane person does and shared my plan with anyone who would listen. I don't run. I make jokes about people who run. I do NOT ... Read full review

Since I'm training for a marathon, reading this book at this phase of my life seemed only appropriate. The book tells an overarching story of ultrarunners in America who compete in a 50 mile race in ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Deanne - Goodreads

I don't know how to rate this book. One or four? One or four? Well, I'll just say three. Why I would give it one star: The language. I know that swearing is common, and that maybe I have a prim ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Adam Volosik - Goodreads

I really enjoyed this book. I think even if you are not a runner it's a good read. It did go into the evolution of homo-sapiens. He also spent time developing a scientific argument that we were “born ... Read full review
