Publisher Description

Everything moves more slowly when I walk, the world seems softer . . . '

From the bestselling author of Silence comes an illuminating exploration of the joy of walking. From those perilous first steps to great expeditions, from walking to work to walking to the North Pole, Erling Kagge explains that he who walks lives longer, and better.

'After having put my shoes on and let my thoughts wander, I am sure of one thing - to put one foot in front of the other is one of the most important things we do.

Author Biography

Erling Kagge is an explorer who was the first in history to reach the 'three poles' - North, South and the summit of Everest. His first book, Silence, was published in 33 languages. He has since returned to Norway and searches for moments of silence amongst noisy family life and work as a writer and publisher.

Review

Part rumination, part walking coach and companion . . . and one that might just do more for your health and happiness than your treadmill alone ever could New York Journal of Books [Walking is] much more subtle than a typical self-help . . . Erling Kagge uses his acquaintance with extreme environments to reflect on the mental and physical benefits of walking Economist Fascinating The Times, on Silence Drawing on the experiences of Kagge's extraordinary life in wild places, this is a book of great concentration Robert Macfarlane, on Silence A thoughtful book-length essay on a taken-for-granted human activity. Kirkus Erling Kagge is a philosophical adventurer - or perhaps an adventurous philosopher New York Times 'If you are a walker this book will resonate with you, if you have seldom or never walked this book should be compulsory reading' -- Rosamund Young, author of 'The Secret Life of Cows' A thought-proving and enjoyable book that revels in seeing the global in the local. Erling Kagge reveals new ways to view home and homo sapiens, and, as he travels leisurely, we grow slowly wiser. -- Tristan Gooley, author of 'The Walker's Guide to Outdoor Clues and Signs'
