User Review  - Sarah - Goodreads

I can now understand a little bit more the perplexing sport of ultra marathon, and why someone might be crazy enough to do it. I also understand where the trend of barefoot running and paleo dieting ... Read full review

User Review  - Christy - Goodreads

This book only gets three stars because it wasn't compelling enough for me to finish it before I had to return it to the library. The whole story is interesting, but the author has to stop and explain ... Read full review

So, the subject matter is interesting - about the Taramura (sp?) running tribe in Mexico. I enjoyed the cameos by other famous barefoot, distance, and regular runners who I have heard/read about from ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Shaun Chandler - Goodreads

A book that competes within itself to deliver both a story and an argument for a return to basics in running. The story is somewhat disjointed and mystic but is enjoyable and has a 'Once a Runner ... Read full review

User Review  - Richard - Goodreads

I was told this was the greatest book since sliced bread. I was lied to. This book felt like several magazine articles strung together in a loose framework. Some parts of the book will appeal to ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Peggy - Goodreads

I found the first few chapters a bit over the top with so many amazing, unbelievable, unbeatable, super-human, etc. runners being touted by the author. I would have liked a little less hype ... Read full review
