Originell, faszinierend, abenteuerlich: ein Journalist auf der Suche nach dem letzten Geheimnis des Sports Seine Passion: das Laufen, sein Beruf: das Schreiben. Christopher McDougall suchte eine Antwort auf eine vermeintlich einfache Frage: Warum tut mir mein Fuß weh? Wie er sind Millionen von Hobbyläufern mindestens einmal im Jahr ernsthaft verletzt. Nach unzähligen Zyklen des Dauerschmerzes, der Kortisonspritzen und immer neuer Hightech-Sportschuhen stand McDougall kurz davor, zu kapitulieren und die Diagnose der Mediziner ein für alle Mal hinzunehmen: „Sie sind einfach nicht zum Laufen gemacht.“ Stattdessen hat sich der Journalist weit abseits der kostspieligen Empfehlungen von Ärzten und Ausrüstern auf eine abenteuerliche Reise zu den geheimnisvollsten und besten Läufern der Welt begeben. Eine Reise, die McDougall in die von Mythen erfüllten Schluchten der Copper Canyons in Mexiko führen sollte, wo ein Volk lebt, das sich seit Jahrhunderten unter extremen Bedingungen seine Lebensweise bewahrt hat. Die Tarahumara verkörpern den menschlichen Bewegungsdrang in seiner reinsten und faszinierendsten Form. Laufen über lange Strecken ist für sie so selbstverständlich wie atmen. Was wussten sie, was McDougall nicht wusste? In seiner Reportage geht er den vergessenen Geheimnissen der Tarahumara nach. Er verbindet lebendiges Infotainment über neueste evolutionsbiologische und ethnologische Erkenntnisse mit zahlreichen, inspirierenden Porträts von Menschen, die sich – egal, ob sie zum Spaß das Death Valley durchqueren oder einen Ultramarathon in den Rocky Mountains absolvieren – eines bewahrt haben: die Freude daran, laufen zu können wie ein Kind. Einfach immer weiter. Denn in Wahrheit, so McDougalls Fazit, sind wir alle zum Laufen geboren.

Selten zuvor hat ein Bühnenkünstler seine eigene Geschichte mit solch einer Kraft und solch einem lodernden Feuer niedergeschrieben. Wie viele seiner Songs (“Thunder Road”, “Badlands”, “Darkness on the Edge of Town", “The River”, “Born in the U.S.A.", “The Rising" oder “The Ghost of Tom Joad”, um ein paar wenige zu erwähnen) ist Bruce Springsteens Autobiografie geprägt von der Lyrik eines einzigartigen Songwriters und der Weisheit eines Mannes, der ausgiebig über sein Leben nachgedacht hat.

Over the past seven years, Bruce Springsteen has privately devoted himselfto writing the story of his life, bringing to these pages the same honesty, humor, and originality found in his songs. He describes growing up Catholic in Freehold, New Jersey, amid the poetry, danger, and darkness that fueled his imagination, leading up to the moment he refers to as The Big Bang: seeing Elvis Presley s debut on The Ed Sullivan Show. He vividly recounts his relentless drive to become a musician, his early days as a bar band king in Asbury Park, and the rise of the E Street Band. With disarming candor, he also tells for the first time the story of the personal struggles that inspired his best work. Born to Run will be revelatory for anyone who has ever enjoyed Bruce Springsteen, but this book is much more than a legendary rock star s memoir. This is a book for workers and dreamers, parents and children, lovers and loners, artists, freaks, or anyone who has ever wanted to be baptized in the holy river of rock and roll. Rarely has a performer told his own story with such force and sweep. Like many of his songs ("Thunder Road, "Badlands." "Darkness on the edge of Town. "The River" "Born in the U.S.A." "The Rising, " abd "The Ghost of Tom Joad," to name just a few). Bruce Springsteen s autobiography is written with the lyricism of a singular songwriter and the wisdom of a man who has thought deeply about his experiences.

The author focuses on the Tarahumara, an ancient tribe of runners that lives isolated in Mexico’s Copper Canyons, but he also pulls in plenty of other characters, past and present, and explores the biological reasons we are all born to run. The summary and analysis in this ebook are intended to complement your reading experience and bring you closer to a great work of nonfiction.

Born to Run by Christopher McDougall | Summary & Analysis Preview: Born to Run is a book about the natural virtues of running, based on Christopher McDougall’s own experiences, research, and training. It is centered on the Tarahumara, an indigenous Mexican tribe known for their feats of long-distance running. McDougall, a journalist, is a low-key hobbyist runner himself, but he experiences numerous injuries which threaten to force him to stop. Given the high injury rate among runners, McDougall is fascinated by stories of the Mexican Tarahumara. These native people live in the rugged, hot Copper Canyon, and are known for running more than 100-mile races over broken ground at amazing speeds. More amazingly still, the Tarahumara wear flat sandals rather than running shoes… PLEASE NOTE: This is key takeaways and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

Despite playing canvas to a long list of talented writers, the IND (Independent) and BMT (Brooklyn Manhattan Transit) lines have been underrepresented in graffiti history. This is now rectified with a collection of high-quality images from the 1970s and 80s that capture works by heavyweights from the BMT like Lee, Mono, Iz The Wiz, Baby168, OE3, P13, and many others. From Coney Island to Queensboro Plaza and everywhere in between, these nostalgic images capture elevated subway scenes, stations, and subway yards and offer a glimpse through time at Brooklyn and Queens in the height of the NYC subway graffiti era. This truly amazing lineup also features early writers on the IND lines like Pistol, Piper, A'train, and IN, in addition to obscure names and throw-ups from these undocumented corridors. This is an ideal volume of subway art for graffiti artists, fans, historians, and students looking for rare photos on the letter lines.
