Reviews

"What an adventure! From the first page, I was hooked. A heartwarming journey into a wonderful world that I never knew existed until Finn swept me up and brought me there." -- Christopher McDougall, author of NATURAL BORN HEROES and BORN TO RUN "Engaging. The Way of the Runner drops us deep behind lines in the land of the rising sun." -- Newsweek "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 "Finn's explorations of Japanese running culture will be fascinating to anyone who enjoys the sport or is interested in learning about life in Japan." -- Library Journal "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. Useful as a fresh perspective on your own running." -- Alexandra Heminsley, author of RUNNING LIKE A GIRL "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
