Running, evolution and no nike,
This review is from: Born to Run: The Hidden Tribe, the Ultra-Runners, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen (Paperback)
I read this from cover to cover in a very short space of time. Its a fascinating story about a tribe of little known people who are brilliant runners. This in itself and the lead-up to the big race at the end of the book make a great true story. With a larger than life cast of real characters, its very easy to read and extremely well written.
However the jewels in the crown of this fabulous book are its insights into the way running may have been critical in the history of human evolution and the great running shoe rip-off. These insights take the book to a different level. I can't recommend it highly enough.
