I don't doubt for a minute that Kimiko's discovery that keeping proper posture when walking and turning it into something you enjoy is good for one's heath and mood, but that statement tells you everything I "learned" from this book.

Kimiko teaches "posture walking" -- essentially walking in a normal, relaxed manner but with good posture -- and spends much of the book explaining how she went from frazzled housewife to independent businesswoman using the skill. Interesting, but not exactly helpful

Not actually about walking, but rather about good posture. A really adorable read that wants to be Marie Kondo's THE LIFE CHANGING MAGIC OF TIDYING UP. Mostly fluff.

Still, it got me fired up about working on my posture, and it was a nice bit of end-of-the-day cheer--you can read it in about 45 minutes.
