Nothing too exceptional about this book but it works as a wonderful motivator. I have fallen into the trap of thinking of walking as a springboard to other "better" fitness activities. This book goes into a good argument for walking as all the excel use you really need. To increase the benefit, simply pick up the pace a bit. It deserves four stars for its motivational boost.

2nd half was a little silly as it was an actual workout set to variable walking rhythms.

walking -- think you don't need to learn any more about it? maybe you are correct. i love to walk and know the advantages and methods of walking as exercise and i still found this audio to be clarifying ... and encouraging. recommended. i've tried it and i love it ... the beat goes on ... and the shin exercises are really really helpful.

Very informative. Didn't realize people actually used walking sticks to exercise.
