"The paradigm has shifted and this book captures it beautifully. The days of trying to build up shoe support with stiff materials and inserts are being replaced with a more natural, intrinsic approach - barefoot running. Ashish convincingly presents why this is the ideal way to build foot stability, balance, and prevent injury."

"Like most runners I know in their 40s, I am desperate to again be able to run healthy. I fought the central thesis of this book, but by addressing some of my main concerns again and again, Ashish has convinced me to try barefoot running."

"This thought provoking and easy to read book had me intrigued and tempted within minutes. It truly puts the burden of proof back on the running shoe industry!"

"Whether you run in shoes or barefoot, the fundamentals described in this book, like posture, and how your feet touch the ground, will be invaluable."

"I don't want to wear shoes. Why is there a book called Run Barefoot except if it is good for you?"
