I loved this book. I was ambivalent, I admit — I’m not much one for books recommended on tv shows, and I probably would have never picked it up on my own in a bookstore (it’s about running, come on!).

But the author was on the Daily Show, and he was so obviously excited and knowledgeable about his topic — it was infectious.

I immediately put it on my to-read list, and ended up reading it on my Nook. It is, in a word, incredible. The science, the history, and the people . . . it’s all woven together in this seamless, always fascinating manner. It’s both educational and entertaining — writing at it’s finest.

More than that, it’s inspiring. I actually want to run now!
