Reviews

Quite simply the best book you'll ever read about running - it's brilliant, and brilliantly life-affirming. -- Lloyd Bradley, author of The Rough Guide to Running
A classic ... in ultrarunners McDougall uncovers a tribe worthy of the pioneering drifters that fired the American spirit, and in McDougall ultrarunners have found their own Kerouac or Krakauer. -- Tim Butcher, author of Blood River
Reaches the state of bliss that runners very occasionally experience in the midst of an endless run. -- Simon Kuper * FT *
Fascinating stuff, particularly for anyone who's ever been frustrated by the apparently shoddy mechanics of their own running body. -- Victoria Moore * Daily Mail *
A sensation ... a rollicking tale well told -- Rick Broadbent * The Times *
Part how-to manual, part scientific treatise but throughout a ripping yarn, this book will inspire everyone who reads it to think on their feet. -- Simon Redfern * Independent on Sunday *
If you're a runner, you probably won't reach the end of the first chapter without bolting for the door to get some miles behind you. * Leeds Guide *
[A] major voice of a new movement. -- Bernard Goldberg * HBO *
Good books about running are rare - Haruki Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a meditative jog compared to this blistering endurance tester - but this ranks among the strongest. -- Julian Fleming * Sunday Business Post *
Utterly unputdownable ... a fascinating peek into the lives of the publicity-shy Tarahumara and the collection of misfits who populate the world of ultra-running ... the final race in Mexico's Copper Canyon will have you turning pages faster than Usain Bolt can run for a bus. -- Natasha Young * Wanderlust *
If you're a runner, you'll love it. It's about how far we can go spiritually and physically. -- Kate Hudson, Actress * Elle *
Inspiring stuff -- Amy Lawrenson * Elle *
I read Born to Run last year and it affected me profoundly. I thought, "F*** it. I'm gonna run a marathon." -- Flea (of Red Hot Chili Peppers) * Runner's World *
Loved this book ... completely wonderful. It will inspire you whether you're already a runner or not. -- Lauren Laverne * Twitter *
