5.0 out of 5 stars Decent bit of kit, 26 Jun 2013
I got mine direct from China for £58 delivered. It took three weeks to come. I agree with the other review that it is a decent peice of kit. It is well put together and the dual sim functionality works well enough. Yesy the headphones and USB are recessed but that is no reason for a 1 star review. You can get extenders.

Note that mine did not come with the english Play Store. Installing was simple enough but I am an experiecned root/rom user.

Conclusions for the money this is impossible to fault.

1.0 out of 5 stars More fiction than non-fiction, 4 May 2012
I am an ultra-runner and was interested to have this book recommended to me by another ultra running friend. However I ended up despising the book and the author. As others have mentioned the author has a magazine style of writing. This was too much for me in a book.

The story about the Tarahumara is interesting, but deserves better treatment than it gets here. Also I totally lost the plot when the author related a chess anecdote and got it completely wrong. I can only imagine how inaccurate the rest of the anecdotes were.

However the claim that barefoot running is the cure to all running ills cannot be made without any references to back it up (this is supposed to be non-fiction after all). Then the author criticises the running shoe companies for making money but goes on to push the Vibram Five Fingers running "shoes". What McDougall fails to mention is that he is in the pay of Vibram and hosts events for them. What a shill.
