Read for you by Katy!
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 biomechanics arguments, Katy 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 pick the right shoes for our body and skill-level.
With over 20 exercises—for more than just the feet—this book is a must-have for anyone hoping to restore lost foot function and improve their health…naturally!
Comes with a PDF of all exercises.

How can we get the pdf for the audiobook? Audible did not include it.

Log in to Audible.com and go to your library! You’ll find it stored on their website (not delivered to a device).
One of your podcast transcripts mentioned an appendix in the e-book version of this book that includes “a how-to and when-to buy shoes” section. I already listened to the whole book in one day and I am really excited to start, but I think that section would definitely be helpful as I don’t know when to start actually wearing the shoes. However, I could have just missed that somehow while listening & working. Could you direct me to how to get that section or maybe a post that you’ve written that’s similar? Thank you!

Bought this on iBooks but didn’t receive the pdf, it’s not in my libary and cannot find a way to download it- any ideas?
Katy Bowman –
Hi Neal! Buying through Audible is the only way the distributor includes it. But, we will email you a copy of it to your account address!

Shoot! Sorry for the “repetitive load” of this question. I also bought the book on Apple Books and have been unable to find the pdf! Side bar – dancer here. So into your work.
in gratitude, Sarah
