One of the best non-fiction books I've ever read. McDougall writes about so many things to help you become a better runner. The Tarahumara have inspired me to run. My Grandfather is a runner also he recommended the book to me and I fell in love with it. One of the big reasons I enjoyed this book is because I can realte to the author. I used to be chubby and a terrible runner now I'm thirteen and on the verge of under a seven minute mile. I thought I'd write this just to let children know that even you could love running.

Changed my view on running
I used to just run as secondary to other athletic training but got into running as a focal point not to long ago. I loved this book and the inspirational stories behind
each character. Even great for people who don't like to run and looking for stories of great human feats. A+

Excellent read
Not only is this book a fun read, it also incorporates lots of interesting facts and side stories. I found myself reading this next to a computer so I could look up some of the subjects!

Great!
We got this book at our college orientation and were given the option of reading it. I didn't really intend to at first, but one day I picked it up and didn't put it down for the next couple of
days. The story is wild and riveting, only made more so by the fact that it is a true account, and I enjoyed it thoroughly! Although it does go of on tangents at time (which did not bother me) the story runs smoothly and barely has a dull moment. I highly recommended it!
