A Solid Book About Running

by Grant W on Dec 5, 2011

Renovned novelist Haruki Murakami took up running to stay in shape and little did he know that it would consume him in the most marvelous ways. He has since run man marathons and even an ultramarathon. Running is as much a part of him as is his writing. In this book, the usually closely guarded Murakami tells about his running and how it has also influenced his writing. While you might say, "Yeah, but it's no 'Wind-Up Bird Chronicle,;", to which I respond, "Yeah, but what is?" This is a fine book and it definitely makes you want to get a pair of running shoes and hit the pavement (or the treadmill).

Great Book

by Bull6 on Jan 29, 2009

I liked the introspective approach the author took to running. His personal experiences rang true to me in my journey into running.
