The Lost Art of Walking: The History, Science, Philosophy, and Literature of Pedestrianism – Geoff Nicholson
I walk a lot. So when I saw this I grabbed it, hoping to maybe gain some insights, get a new appreciation for walking, etc.
It’s part autobiographical, part historic anecdotes about people engaged in feats of extreme pedestrianism, part lists of the subject of walking showing up in songs or movies or books.
I found it meandering and started skimming over it after a while.
To be very blunt about it, I would have gotten more out of going for a walk.
