Freely available books on barefoot runningAlthough barefoot running is best to be learnt by example, e.g. by someone showing you how to actually run barefoot or in minimalist shoes, it cannot hurt to check a book or two on the subject.
So far, I've found the following freely available books on barefoot/minimalist running:
