Description

When Chris McDougall stumbled across the story of Churchill's 'dirty tricksters', a motley crew of English poets and academics who helped resist the Nazi invasion of Crete, he knew he was on the track of something special.

To beat the odds, the tricksters - starving, aging, outnumbered - tapped in to an ancient style of fitness: the lost art of heroism. They listened to their instincts, replaced calories with stored bodily fat, and used their fascia, the network of tissue which criss-crosses the body, to catapult themselves to superhuman strength and endurance.

Soon McDougall was in the middle of a modern fitness revolution taking place everywhere from Parisian parkour routes to state-of-the-art laboratories and based on the know-how of Shanghai street fighters and Wild West gunslingers.

Just as Born to Run got runners off the treadmill and into nature, Natural Born Heroes will inspire casual athletes to dump the gym memberships for cross-training, mud runs, and free running.

Confused !

What would have made Natural Born Heroes better?

I came from Born to Run to this and was as if in a maze . The author didnt know as if what he was writing about .

What was most disappointing about Christopher McDougall’s story?

it had no momentum

Excellent book weirdo narrator

Great fun to listen to for the most part but the voice acting is incredibly distracting and irritating at times. Especially when he does women’s and kids voices or puts on a pseudo British accent as though he reading fiction. It’s down right horrible and ruins an otherwise excellent time listening. It’s all the more unbearable because he is actually reasonable (certainly not good) for the most part. He should stick to novels. McDougall is such a good writer that I feel like a lot of the coolness is lost in the audio version anyway. Get the kindle version or one made of paper for the best experience from this writer.

A fantastic book!

This book is highly recommended by Laird Hamilton, the legendary Hawaiian Big wave surfer and peak performance devotee. He described it as ‘Biblical’ in the impact it had on him. I highly agree, the author deftly weaves ancient history, World War II resistance heroism with modern parkour, functional fitness and diet cutting edge science. Highly entertaining and full of usable inspiration.

outstanding

More than a war story of epic proportions, it is a blueprint for a healthy, vibrant and exciting life. were I able to ensure that the very best among my friends and military comrades read just one book - this would be it.

Einfach nur Mist

"Born to run" hat wirklich dazu angeregt die Laufschuhe aus dem Keller zu holen, sich willig eine "laufende" Nase zu holen und froh jauchzend die vom vielen Sitzen plattgepökelten Bandscheiben, an nass-kalten Tagen, früh morgens um halb elf, in vernebelten Parks herauszufordern. Hier jedoch, grüßt bloß die US Army. Eigentlich kein Stern. Sprecher sollte überlegen mal in NRA Werbespots mit zu agitieren.
