Learning to Breathe Fire

The history of the rise of CrossFit from a tiny, unknown gym to the workout that millions around the country do on a regular basis.  This book explores what it is to be human and why, deep inside each of us, is a desire to return to the “wild”.  I don’t have much to say about this book, mostly because I didn’t find it to be very good.  The writing struggled to intrigue me and keep me reading.  It also was obviously not written by a Christian, who made no attempt to hide her view that we are returning to the primitive cavemen we all began as.

Overall I was disappointed in this book,  It wasn’t what I was expecting and was hard to read.  But if you’re willing to overlook the flaws, you may enjoy the history of CrossFit.
