Born To Run
I heard that Born to Run is a really good book about barefoot running. After listening to it, I agree that it's a very good book, but I would say it is more about running, and a little about barefoot running. It also was about how modern civilization (and marketing) has changed how we run and how the last running tribes are becoming extinct. At times, I wondered where the author was going with his history of some particular runner, but it all came back in eventually.
He talked a bit about the modern nutrition of runners versus what the running people eat and drink. Some of the characters were interesting and kept me engaged in the book. I would recommend this book.
