WALKING One Step At A Time Erling Kagge
Internationally bestselling author of SILENCE
Translated from Norwegian into English.
Reviews: “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.’
‘Walking is a book about the love of exploration, the delight of discovery and the equilibrium than can be found in this most simple of activities.’
Personal Review: Interesting to read. It was Kagge’s parents who first took him walking. Kagge writes “ So much in our lives fast-paced. Walking is a slow undertaking. It is among the most radical things you can do.” This is a handbag sized book that can be read in one sitting on a train trip from Medlow Bath to Sydney and back. Kagge is deep thinking on benefits of walking, introduces the thinking of Einstiein, Socrates, also Hippocrates advice for walking….. “Walking sometimes means undertaking an inner voyage of discovery. You are shaped by buildings, faces, signes, weather, and the atmosphere. Maybe we were meant to walk. Walking is a combination of movement, humility, balance, curiosity, smell, sound, light and – if you walk far enough – longing.” So writes Kagge. I agree. A book for deeper thinking on ‘walking’ itself.
