User Review  - Rikki Beadle-blair - Goodreads

Gripping. Exhilarating. Took a while for me to relax into the slightly hyped up Rolling Stone magazine style prose. But full of outrageous affectionately drawn characters, controversial theories and an indisputable infectious passion for life. Definitely enhanced my joy for running. Read full review

This book was intriguing, learning about this culture in the jungle, that pretty much runs everywhere and to go 50 miles in one day is no big deal, it's crazy! It really did inspire me to want to run more, longer distances and even try barefoot running! Good read! Read full review

The best part is that I've trained for several half marathons injury-free since adopting the barefoot running style. If you're nerdy about running, you'll love it. Read full review
