9780571303168: The Way of the Runner: A journey into the fabled world of Japanese running
Críticas:

Brilliant ... Funny, charming and wise. Finn shines a light on a way of life that puts serious running at the heart of its culture and shows why the way of the runner: the racing and preparation, but also the culture, diet and lifestyle, is really a way of life - one that all of us, runners and non-runners alike should all aspire to. ( Robin Harvie, author of Why We Run)

Insightful ... packed with tips for runners. ( Shortlist)

Combines great storytelling with immersive research ... Finn, a lovely, anxious narrator as he approaches his 40th birthday worried about his race times, discovers how utterly ingrained in the Japanese psyche running is - as a mainstay of both community and psychology ... U seful as a fresh perspective on your own running. ( Alexandra Heminsley (author of RUNNING LIKE A GIRL), Independent on Sunday)

Brilliant, superbly written and a cracking read. (Kate Carter Guardian Running Blog)

A great look at Japanese distance running and will provide an interesting read to anyone who wants to know what makes a particular running community tick ... if you liked Running With the Kenyans then you will definitely enjoy this. ( Athletics Weekly)

Engaging ... The Way of the Runner drops us deep behind lines in the land of the rising sun. ( Newsweek)

A fascinating journey through a running culture so dissimilar to that which western society is familiar with it can at times seem a different sport ... a great read, giving a rare insight into a sporting world rich in heritage, but also one that is in flux. ( Ira Rainey, author of Fat Man to Green Man)

Utterly fascinating. I could spend much, much longer telling you about all of my favourite bits from this book, but I won't. Because I really want you to buy it. In fact I want you to buy two and give one away. I believe that there is not enough good storytelling about running (there could probably never be enough for me!) so I want people like Adharanand Finn to keep doing what they do. ( Simon Freeman, http://simonfreeman.co.uk/2015/03/book-review-the-way-of-the-runner-by-adharanand-finn/)

An excellent book and a true insight into an anomaly of world running. Finn's keen eye and lilting turn of phrase make for a fascinating and easy read. I sped through the book in the manner of one of Finn's elite ekiden runners, wanting to know more, and wanting to experience it all with him. ( Sports Book Review, http://thesportsbookreview.com/2015/03/31/book-review-the-way-of-the-runner-a-journey-into-the-fabled-world-of-japanese-running-adharanand-finn/)
