Att läsa boken på originalspråket engelska ger boken en annan dimension än att läsa den på svenska. Jag blir återigen sugen på Ultradistanser. Den spännande historien som leder fram till "det största loppet världen någonsin har upplevt" blandas med intressanta fakta från olika tester kring löpning som har genomförts.

Quite simply the best book you'll ever read about running - it's brilliant, and brilliantly life-affirming. -- Lloyd Bradley, author of The Rough Guide to Running A classic ... in ultrarunners McDougall uncovers a tribe worthy of the pioneering drifters that fired the American spirit, and in McDougall ultrarunners have found their own Kerouac or Krakauer. -- Tim Butcher, author of Blood River Reaches the state of bliss that runners very occasionally experience in the midst of an endless run. -- Simon Kuper FT Fascinating stuff, particularly for anyone who's ever been frustrated by the apparently shoddy mechanics of their own running body. -- Victoria Moore Daily Mail A sensation ... a rollicking tale well told -- Rick Broadbent The Times Part how-to manual, part scientific treatise but throughout a ripping yarn, this book will inspire everyone who reads it to think on their feet. -- Simon Redfern Independent on Sunday If you're a runner, you probably won't reach the end of the first chapter without bolting for the door to get some miles behind you. Leeds Guide [A] major voice of a new movement. -- Bernard Goldberg HBO Good books about running are rare - Haruki Murakami's What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is a meditative jog compared to this blistering endurance tester - but this ranks among the strongest. -- Julian Fleming Sunday Business Post Utterly unputdownable ... a fascinating peek into the lives of the publicity-shy Tarahumara and the collection of misfits who populate the world of ultra-running ... the final race in Mexico's Copper Canyon will have you turning pages faster than Usain Bolt can run for a bus. -- Natasha Young Wanderlust If you're a runner, you'll love it. It's about how far we can go spiritually and physically. -- Kate Hudson, Actress Elle Inspiring stuff -- Amy Lawrenson Elle I read Born to Run last year and it affected me profoundly. I thought, "F*** it. I'm gonna run a marathon." -- Flea (of Red Hot Chili Peppers) Runner's World Loved this book ... completely wonderful. It will inspire you whether you're already a runner or not. -- Lauren Laverne Twitter
