McDougall reveals the secrets of the world's greatest distance runners--the Tarahumara Indians of Copper Canyon, Mexico--and how he trained for the challenge of a lifetime: a fifty-mile race through the heart of Tarahumara country pitting the tribe against an odd band of super-athletic Americans.

Good book, thought provoking. Made me want to consider trying running again despite having bad knees. Read some of the reviews that are critical though because they bring up really good points. ( )

One of the most motivating books I have ever read. Not that is was necessarily written as a motivational book but the history and knowledge contained in this book from hundreds of years of human history is amazing and motivates me to run and use these proven principles to improve my running and my daily life in ways I would have not imagined ( )

This book came at the worst time for me. I've been running a few miles every day since summer started, but the day I started reading this book was the day my calves decided to give out after I went jump-roping/overrunning Monday/Tuesday. Imagine reading back-to-back passages about runners who could speed through dozens upon dozens of miles in one sitting (running?) while you're sprawled on the sofa, your legs feeling like they've been scooped out with a spoon, and that spoon is currently moving from the blueberry bowl and into your mouth.

Born to Run was super accessible: Fast, easy, and all the other adjectives Caballo used to try and make Christopher McDougall move his legs like the White Horse. His writing had "cool" scribbled all over it. So did his adventures in Mexico and the background ultramarathanoning research he so expertly narrated. I especially loved the biology chapter that explained why human beings really evolved, through a running lens, which is awesome.

Overall, I had few qualms with this book, too few and too minor to move it to a 4-star. I wish I could learn more about the narrator, Christopher, who seemed like too much of an enigma as a protagonist--more than the fact that he's an often-injured journalist. I also agree that he exaggerates way too much, and that it definitely serves as a flaw in the way we perceive him and his stories. However, I think the hyperbole also thrust the narrative forward in a pace I've rarely encountered in non-fiction like this. Definitely read this if you run and want to learn more about this habit of yours. ( )

very cool. it had been recommended to my by a bunch of people, but was much better than i expected, i wasn't expecting the whole great story and super-people.

I thought it was just another running book. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Excellent storytelling.

Listened to the Audiobook. The book was very interesting, really enlightening. There were some themes/topics that the author talked about that were a little hard to believe, but overall a good book with a very good story. Particularly like how the author can begin a tangent and you forget where you were before the tangent started. Audiobook reader was also particularly good. ( )

“Born to Run” is not the best book on the intricacies of the sport—my pick would be Timothy Noakes’s “Lore of Running”; for a training guide, I’d select Scott Douglas and Pete Pfitzinger’s “Advanced Marathoning”—but it’s certainly the most accessible and the best selling... the real virtue of McDougal’s book is that it reminded readers about our primal connection to running, the purest of sports. It reminded us that there are different ways to run—some of which hurt our bodies more than others. And it gave us new ways of appreciating distance running. It has, in other words, made hundreds of thousands of people look at the sport again
 
"Born to Run" uses every trick of creative nonfiction, a genre in which literary license is an indispensable part of truth-telling. McDougall has arranged and adrenalized his story for maximum narrative impact. Questions crop up about the timing of events and the science behind the drama, but it's best to keep pace with him and trust that -- separate from the narrative drama -- we're actually seeing a glimpse of running's past and how it may apply to the present and the future.
