Sintesi dell'editore

The humble act of putting one foot in front of the other transcends age, geography, culture, and class and is one of the most economical and environmentally responsible modes of transit. Yet with our modern fixation on speed, this healthy pedestrian activity has been largely left behind.

At a personal and professional crossroads, writer, editor, and obsessive walker Dan Rubinstein travelled throughout the US, the UK, and Canada to walk with people who saw the act not only as a form of transportation and recreation but also as a path to a better world. There are no magic-bullet solutions to modern epidemics like obesity, anxiety, alienation, and climate change. But what if there is a simple way to take a step in the right direction?

Combining fascinating reportage, eye-opening research, and Rubinstein's own discoveries, Born to Walk explores how far this ancient habit can take us and how much repair is within range and guarantees that you'll never again take walking for granted.

"Walking long distances daily is good for your health. We know that. But Rubinstein goes several steps further with this thought-provoking, transcendent book on the benefits of covering the miles on foot." ( Toronto Star)
