"buy these shoes" or "run this way," then keep looking. What you will understand is that even though man ran distance for millions of years, our current environment of shoes and cities has had an effect on how our bodies have developed. Sure, the genetic code is still there and all of the biomechanics are still present, they have not gotten the right development and use. You can still get there and this book gives many insights into how you can find the ancient runner inside you. It also gives you the confidence to experiment and understand what your body is saying and how to listen. For me, it has articulated what I was beginning to think and given me many new paths to read and understand more. Running for fun and pleasure is the payback.
