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're a runner, you'll love it. It's about how far we can go spiritually and physically.
I read Born to Run last year and it affected me profoundly. I thought, "F*** it. I'm gonna run a marathon."
Loved this book ... completely wonderful. It will inspire you whether you're already a runner or not.
