Born to Run - Feet in The Clouds,
This review is from: Born to Run: The Hidden Tribe, the Ultra-Runners, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Paperback)
Born to run caused me to rush to my nearest sports shop and by a pair of running shoes, and see how much i could push myself. Whilst I'm just a mere beginner, i believe i am pushing my limits like the real life characters in the book.
The book itself is brilliantly written. What makes it "un-put-downable" is the fact that the chapters are short. So you can get through each chapter during say a lunch break. (and then want to rush home and go for that five mile run).
Born To Run has a British Counterpart, "Feet In the Clouds: A Story of Fell Running and Obsession" by Richard Askwith. Both are classics and recommended.
