Quite simply the best book you'll ever read about running - it's brilliant, and brilliantly life-affirming.
A classic ... in ultrarunners McDougall uncovers a tribe worthy of the pioneering drifters that fired the American spirit, and in McDougall ultrarunners have found their own Kerouac or Krakauer.
Reaches the state of bliss that runners very occasionally experience in the midst of an endless run.
Fascinating stuff, particularly for anyone who's ever been frustrated by the apparently shoddy mechanics of their own running body.
A sensation ... a rollicking tale well told
Part how-to manual, part scientific treatise but throughout a ripping yarn, this book will inspire everyone who reads it to think on their feet.
If you're a runner, you probably won't reach the end of the first chapter without bolting for the door to get some miles behind you.
[A] major voice of a new movement.
Good books about running are rare - Haruki Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a meditative jog compared to this blistering endurance tester - but this ranks among the strongest.
Utterly unputdownable ... a fascinating peek into the lives of the publicity-shy Tarahumara and the collection of misfits who populate the world of ultra-running ... the final race in Mexico's Copper Canyon will have you turning pages faster than Usain Bolt can run for a bus.

If you suffer from self doubt about your ability to run, or think running doesn't suit you after the last injury you had then this book is a must read.
This book is different in the scene that It wont give you high moral teaching but tells you about the mechanism of running and development of human or in general animals as running machine.
I like very much the description of Tarahumara culture description and persistence hunting.
This book will make you thinking about running.
After reading this book, I have started running bare foot. Believe me you will enjoy running bare foot. I am running bare foot since last six month and even long distance (21k) feels enjoyable.
