User Review  - David - Goodreads

Highly readable and fun, but top honors for its educational aspects - frankly, this book really opened my eyes to the history of running and running shoes. It changed the way I run ever since. Read full review

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

User Review  - Catherine - Goodreads

I have no idea how factual this book actually is, but I'm going to pretend it's all true because it was a fun and inspirational read. The cheesy, journalistic tone was distracting, but it didn't spoil it for me. As brutal as ultra running sounds, I'm still sitting here with the urge to lace up. Read full review

User Review  - Alex - Goodreads

While the book concerns marathons, ultra-marathons, and ultra-ultra-marathons (100-miles), it's too hard not to power through this book in a sprint. Fantastically readable, this page-turner ... Read full review

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

User Review  - Dan Na - Goodreads

A book that legitimately makes me consider both running and vegetarianism. An enthralling story coupled with a compelling message on health, fitness, and the "freedom" of running. I'm a bit more skeptical about the sections discussing evolutionary biology, but that stuff is secondary to me. Read full review

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

User Review  - Christy - Goodreads

This was a fascinating look at running from several perspectives - historical, cultural, anatomical. I haven't ever really been interested in ultra-running (distances longer than marathons), but this book inspired a lot of curiosity about who does it, as well as why and how. Read full review

User Review  - Chris - Goodreads

People need not assume this book is talking specifically to them. They need to find their own running style because everyone has different biomechanics due to their stature and build. Otherwise, a cool look into the lives of the Tarahumara. Read full review
