Embark on an inspiring journey to unleash your body’s extraordinary potential in “Natural Born Heroes” by bestselling author Christopher McDougall. This book redefines the heroic ideal, revealing heroism as a skill set rather than a virtue.
McDougall’s adventure starts with a tale of exceptional athletic ability: a diverse group of World War II resistance fighters on the treacherous mountains of Crete who abducted a German commander. To comprehend their success, he retraces their steps, exploring ancient techniques for endurance, sustenance, and natural movement preserved in unique communities worldwide.
Join McDougall as he scrambles over rooftops with a London Parkour crew, forages for greens with a Brooklyn ballerina, and tosses driftwood on a Brazilian beach with the creator of MovNat. This exploration extends to your own backyard, illustrating how ordinary individuals can achieve extraordinary athletic feats.
“Natural Born Heroes” combines historical events and modern athleticism to inspire you to discover your inherent physical capabilities and embrace a lifestyle of movement, endurance, and overall well-being.
