Barefoot enthusiasts say ditching your shoes is essential for optimal whole-body function. Doctors say minimalist shoes cause injury. Who's right? What if they both are? In Whole Body Barefoot, biomechanist Katy Bowman explains how both sides are right and wrong by broadening the perspective of over-simplified "shoes are good" or "shoes are bad" arguments. Using evolutionary-based and biomechanical arguments, Bowman demonstrates that shoes, in a modern context, have purpose, but that the trade-off for protection can be reduced whole-body health if we don't select the right shoes for our body and skill-level.

How to get the PDF
This is an amazing book full of practical solutions for improving not only your foot, but also your whole body health. Regarding the PDF, I heard from the publishers that they have given the file to Audible and are unsure of the delay. They are more than happy to email it to anyone who needs it. Simply email them at firstname.lastname@example.org to request it.

Where's the PDF the author mentions many times?
The technical information is helpful. The author's reading is excellent. So where's the accompanying pdf the author mentions numerous times during the audio recording of her own book? I'm very disappointed with Audible.com and the author for neglecting the written material and diagrams. As of June 2, 2015, the accompanying pdf is not available.
