Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage) by Christopher McDougall
Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Vintage)

mirrorman, January 1, 2013

Partly an autobiographic tale of athletic struggle, partly table-pounding polemic, partly a quick anthropological dip into unknown (to me) cultures, it all combined into a quick, exciting and inspiring read that made me excited to push my own boundaries. I'm certain that each element of this book could have been expanded into a book of its own; for example, I would love to read more about the Tarahumara from a non-running standpoint, to understand better their actual struggles as a society. That said, I blasted through this book with unexpected speed and joy, and I recommend it to anyone interested in a quick overview of the weird subcultures of running.
