Come si evince dal nome è un libro sulla corsa scritto da un giornalista americano.
Parla di una tribù messicana, con una predisposizione innata per la corsa…a piedi nudi o quasi.
Non voglio tediarvi con la sinossi del libro, ma uno dei concetti forte di questo libro è che le scarpe ultraammortizzate degli ultimi anni, sono la principale causa degli infortuni dei runner, perchè il piede, così avvolto in questo cuscinetto d’aria, disimpara il modo corretto di correre. In pratica le scarpe, più sono sottili e dure e meglio è.
Le scarpe bloccano il dolore, non l’impatto!
Il dolore ci insegna a correre in maniera giusta e comoda!
Dal momento in cui cominciate ad andare scalzi, cambierete completamente il vostro modo di correre.
(Naked Toe’s manifesto, di Ken Bob lo scalzo)
Fa venire voglia di correre...

Well.... it is very much counter-intuition. Could the slow human actually born to run?? And the reason why we could win the game of evolution... is actually because we could run??
Well.... we have a lot of muscles and bones developed specifically useful for running. We are naked and covered with sweat gland... help us to ventilate than any other animals so that we can chase the deer till they drop dead because of over-heating.
We are not super fast, but has high endurance. Yes, I know it is unbelievable. Human running is longer per step than a horse.....
Adding these with the fact that there is a tribe in Africa really chase goat to heat-death.... and... we invented bow and arrows long after our brain grow into the current enormous size..... hmmmm.....
well... for a (very slow and lazy) runner like me well-understood the super positive energy and relaxation running could bring... will really incline to believe that we DO born to run.... so we are so happy and positive after running....
maybe... there are way to make us even happy or blissful during running too!

This is not only the best book about running I've ever read. It's as well a wonderful book. This book will rattle not only all your ideas about running but about society. I promise you're not going to look at Nike with the same eyes again.
What can you find between these pages? amazing stories of amazing people. Great characters explaining how they became better runners just becoming better persons.
Really, don't read this book unless you're ready to change your life :)
