Amazing book.  I still haven’t gotten around to writing about it yet, but Born to Run is a great, fast read,and while it’s about running, its appeal goes well beyond that.  McDougall’s efficient, energetic prose explores the culture of the Tarahumara people – a running tribe, the running shoe industry, and the community that has grown up around ultra-running (races 30 miles or more). May also convince one to try barefoot or minimalist running.  (I’m convinced I’d like to try it, and that in theory it could be the cure for recurring foot and leg injuries, but I haven’t quite gotten around to it, or buying the Vibram Five Fingers for that matter.)
