Very nicely written piece on specialized topic. Told in an unbiased way that reinforced my decision to go barefoot/minimalist for the last 18 months. I do not think I could run conventional shoes again, after almost 40 years heel striking.

As a physical therapist and strength coach I appreciate all the work that went into reading through the research supporting the benefits of barefoot training. I've passed this book on to a few of the physicians I work with and they've been raving about it as well.

Arthur Horne writes a wonderful book to enlighten and enhance athletes & non athletes on the intrinsic nature of how we are and can be through barefoot training. In a short time I was on the last page with more clarity on this subject than before. A quick read that focuses on "what's the next step" to help the reader learn and apply the lessons of this author and researchers that have studied this training method before. Great book to learn and train more toward barefoot in whatever way may be suitable.

Great book. Quick read, well written. Scientific but also practical for a non-clinician. Author has a great down-to-earth style of writing
