The author sets out to discover the secrets of the world's fastest runners, the Kenyans, who have managed to capture the top spots in numerous marathons and other races around the world. John Lee's narration is well paced and believable as Finn, an English journalist who brings his wife and young children along as he sets out to train with the Kenyan runners for a year. Lee adds variation to his narration as he voices the Kenyans with whom Finn trained, deftly portraying various accents and rhythms of speech. With respect, he explores the Kenyans’ philosophies on running as well as the cultural differences Finn encounters, sometimes with comedic effect.
