    1. After the Born to Run audiobook I was itching for something firmly rooted in reality This was just that Most of the book is a pretty thorough literature survey on subjects like footwear, foot plant when running, arm swing when running, stride rate, and stride length, and all of their effects on injury and efficiency The tl dr is that you can run safely pretty much any way that s comfortable to you, as long as you ramp up slowly and build strength along the way The authors do come down slightly [...]



    2. I picked up this book in the hopes of trying to figure out why I seem to be plagued with running injuries frequently lately Is it overuse Or age Maybe both but honestly probably just age groan Anyway, this book is all about examining running injuries and their causes, prevention, and related myths i.e barefoot running cures all ills Not so.This book was very well researched, even though ultimately we don t know much of anything about running injuries There were some interesting points brought u [...]


    3. I guess I ll have to read this again before saying much about it I read it during vacation, mostly in front of a big screen TV playing NCIS episodes My concentration must have been faulty.I remember that it s full of summaries about research into the question of why running injuries seem so common nowdays despite mankind s unique adaptation to running over a lot of years of evolution The most common predictors of a future injury are previous injury, lack of experience, competition, and weekly ru [...]


    4. I haven t read very many running books In fact, I ve only read three that I can remember, one being Christopher MacDougal s legendary Born to Run , and Jason Robillard s excellent The Barefoot Running Book And having read Robillard this book nicely fills in the gaps, fleshes out and in generally expands on the topic of barefoot running versus shoes, the history of running, the mechanics of running, injury prevention and so on While Robillard is hard core barefoot, this book doesn t take any kind [...]


    5. As a runner, I spend some time thinking about how I can run efficiently Tread Lightly discusses, as the by line suggests, form, footwear and the quest for injury free running One of the authors is a former Anatomy professor, so he has a research scientific evidence based approach to this.After spending some time discussing the history of running and the development evolution of the running shoe, the authors support a less is approach to running shoes i.e they provide evidence against extreme c [...]


    6. I am just getting into running and have read a few books on the topic such as Born to Run by Christopher McDougall and Finding Ultra by Rich Roll however I found this book to be the best of the three I have read so far I would still strongly recommend the other books mentioned.However Tread Lightly by Peter Larson and Bill Larson is rather than being an inspiration or interesting story is informative and full of running facts I particularly liked the neutral way the two authors present facts fr [...]


    7. It s hard to get the facts on where the state of the science in terms of running and injuries and how best to avoid them This book covered the basis wellMain take aways we really don t have great answers yet If you are a beginner and try to do too much too fast you are likely to get hurt A varied routine may help i.e not running on the same street, with the same shoes, etc We have no clue in terms of why some types of shoes work for some people and not for others try different things There is s [...]


    8. Great book for new runners or long time runners looking to increase their knowledge on the sport and on the shoes available in the market When a consensus can t be made on a topic, such as the best foot strike to implement, they present all sides in a fair manner and criticize flawed arguments when necessary e.g the shoe fitting process at stores and marketing techniques used by shoe manufacturers to pigeon hole runners in shoe types i.e stability shoes vs neutral vs barefoot I enjoyed the addit [...]


    9. Full disclosure I didn t actually read the whole book, both for time reasons it was due back at the library and also because a lot of the information just wasn t useful to me I wanted tips on how to improve or change my form, and instead got a history on the evolution of humans as runners hey, I already read Born To Run , or a thorough history on ALL types of shoes interesting, but again, not why I got the book I started skipping to chapters that I thought might be relevant and didn t find a wh [...]


    10. There are a lot of things in this book to like The history of shoes is great, and the discussion of scientific studies on gait and footwear is a lot interesting than it sounds The last chapter is inexplicably devoted to the paleo diet, which seems really out of place in a book primarily about shoes and running form Aside from that, there s a lot of fascinating stuff I m giving this three stars instead of four because the narrator of the audiobook said casual when I m 100% sure the authors used [...]


    11. Definitely for real hardcore runners who have been following the trends since 2009 or so If you are an intense shoe geek you will like this book you know who you are Lots of info, very informative, got a little dry in a couple parts as the authors were giving you statistics like crazy but some people love that stuff Over all I think they did a great job putting in to place a lot of information without leaning to far one way or trying to sway the reader to try something that might not work, givin [...]


    12. Tread Lightly is compulsory reading for every serious runner Peter Larson has written a highly readable book about how to avoid running injuries The beauty of this book is how it summarises and puts into a practical context the latest scientific and medical research on the mechanics of running and injuries Avoiding fads the advice that Peter Larson gives is both practical and well grounded You are never given bare advice Each time the latest research is explained and the advice is related to it [...]


    13. A nice companion to Born to Run, picking up where that book left off regarding if humans have evolved to run long distances, why do runners seem to suffer so many injuries The book is half science the science of running injuries, running shoes, running form,and half lore the history of running, persistence hunting, the evolution of running shoes, exceptional runners of the past.It s all very readable and interesting if you re a runner The discussion of running shoes was particularly enlightening [...]


    14. I really enjoyed this one an easy read with lots of great detail, data, and stories about running The authors cover many aspects of running human evolution, the past 100 years of elite runner history, the evolution of running shoes, how running stores work, cadence, stride, foot strike, upper body, nutrition all kinds of good stuff They don t take a hard stance and say one way is the only way, and they cover all kinds of interesting studies and research I come away feeling much better informed a [...]


    15. This is not a manual or a step by step book on how to achieve the correct running form rather it s all of the knowledge that both the authors have garnered through out the years and it s presented that way It was a fairly easy read, although initially I had to get over the fact the fact that they do not really make any recommendations or show you anything Will this book change the way you run Not likely but then you will know about the current research that is going on surrounding running as we [...]


    16. This is a great book with lots of good, well sourced, current information What it doesn t do is advocate a particular style of running, footwear, etc It can seem a bit too neutral at times, but the authors do a good job of showing both sides of the evidence and in particular that there is little clear indication that any one thing is definitely better than the other The only thing they clearly argue against is overstriding, though you can work on that whether you heel strike or not.


    17. Great book with lots of information about how humans evolved as runners and the history of running shoes It discusses foot strike, gait, and form and how there is no one perfect version of any of those things The book is largely geared toward helping people figure out how to avoid running injuries Super fun for me because for some reason I like to read about running I also really enjoy the runblogger blog written by one of the authors Peter Larson.


    18. For a runner looking to make sense of all the hype and research about running this book is the key It is well written and researched The authors compare results of research and show the inconsistency and gaps as well as the clear facts The runner who reads this book will be better informed and able to separate the fact from the hype At least for what is known This book lead me to start learning about biomechanics and human anatomy.


    19. Based on the title, I assumed that the book would have a really heavy handed minimalism, minimalism, minimalism agenda And I wouldn t mind if it did, since I do tend to lean toward that direction myself But the book presented multiple facets of running that were all very balanced and thoughtfully presented.jillwillrun 2012 08 14 tre


    20. The work presents a well balanced and researched look at the proper footwear, the evolution of running and the cultural differences in running for example, Kenyans run barefoot for transportation.It could have use a little editing, as some themes were repeated however, each chapter can be written independently of the others so it may be attributable to that.


    21. Coupled well with Born to Run and the barefoot minimalist shoe debate Good data points I m ready to try different shoes and no shoes beach runs are shoeless and I know how good they feel and let my natural pronation and wide Irish Peasant feet do what they were designed to do Slowly and gradually Injuries suck.


    22. I ve been running 8Ks, 10Ks, and half marathons for years I decided I wanted to start running full marathons now This is a good book Good information on speed, diet, running form, and running history.


    23. It s less agenda oriented than Born to Run, but isn t nearly as fun Tread Lightly examines studies done on shoes, foot striking, and stride length While I left the book educated than I came, most of my questions are still unanswered But that is the case with running and injuries.


    24. This book ranged between a 2 and a 4 for me, depending on the section I definitely found some useful information, but somehow this book wasn t everything I d hoped it would be.
