Best-selling author Christopher McDougall (“Born to Run”) takes us into the heart of the Greek resistance in World War II on the island of Crete where we get an incredible portrait of the English and Cretan heroes who summon super-human stamina and fitness to outmaneuver the Nazis.
The book is “Natural Born Heroes” and in the process, the reader gets to examine how we, mere mortals living mundane lives, can unleash the power of our muscles and minds to achieve super hero accomplishments.
In short, McDougall has done it again. He takes us on breathtaking climbs in pitch dark mountains with Germans in hot pursuit to a self examination as to the tools and training the create a hero.
An absolute must read.
