About the Author

Dr. George Sheehan was a respected cardiologist, accomplished runner, and bestselling author of eight books on the importance of exercise and sport. One of the pioneers of the fitness boom of the late '70s, he was dubbed by many as the runner's "guru," but his audience encompassed all athletes. He passed away in 1993.


"November 1 marks the 20th anniversary of Dr. George Sheehan's death and the publication of The Essential Sheehan: A Lifetime of Running Wisdom from the Legendary Dr. George Sheehan (Rodale). "Twenty years after George Sheehan's passing," says Mark Weinstein, executive editor, Rodale Books, "his message is as relevant and as needed as ever, if not more so. Sadly, the vast majority of his work is now out of print, so the idea behind the release of The Essential Sheehan (and the re-release of his classic, Running and Being) is to introduce his writings to a whole new generation of readers and runners" There will be an excerpt of The Essential Sheehan in the December issue of Runner's World and there will be promotions at both the Chicago and New York marathons." --PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY

"This book is sure to inspire" --EXAMINER.COM "This is a must-have book for any runner." --SALTMARSHRUNNING.COM "Reading this book will be a major treat..." --RUN BLOG RUN "These excerpts from his books and columns can help provide the renewal many of us may be able to put to excellent use when we 'hit the wall' of life...Call it a gold-medal read. Dr. Sheehan's worlds are timeless." --RUN BLOG RUN
