Born to Run features in Amazon.com’s ‘100 Books to Read in a Lifetime’

McDougall’s Born to Run featured amongst ‘A bucket list of books to create a well-read life’

Who would have ever thought that a book about running would be regarded as a classic, and feature amongst other literary classics such as Orwell’s 1984, Nabokov’s Lolita, and Austen’s Pride and Prejudice (not to mention Eric Carle’s The Very Hungry Caterpillar)?

Well, the international bestseller took the word by storm in 2010, and has made Amazon.com’s cut! Incredible.
