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  - Christopher Black - Goodreads

Good, but reads more like a 280 page magazine article rather than a book. "The greatest race the world has never seen" was only about the last 20 pages and it skipped around way too much in my opinion ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Cheryl - Goodreads

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
