Born to Run - A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen

Born to Run, is book which has a hero, a sidekick and villean(s) connected to theme of running. The mix of science and folk lore makes it an interesting read. Author Christopher McDougall has succeeded to create a narrative which is entertaining and informative at the same time. The writing is so powerful that it makes one go out for a run. That according to me is the best part about the book. 

I don't think this book will help us to improve running skills, but it will surely inspire us to reach out and seek ways to improve. Chris is like a good professor who drops hints about the solution to the problem, but wants the us to explore on them on our own. 

Looking forward to read books - Natural Born Heroes from Chris and Eat and Run from Scott Jurek.
