From the Publisher"Every true runner will get a laugh out of this book. Schwartz does a good job pointing out the wonderful absurdities of our sport."
Arturo Barrios— Five-time world-record holder
"In this book, Bob Schwartz captures a unique spirit that every runner experiences regardless of fitness level. His perspective on running—a sport that can cause extreme moments of both glory and pain—is sharp, real, and very funny. Schwartz covers all the basics with a witty voice and a runner's hard-earned experience."
Lizzie Wann— Editor of Fitness Runner magazine
"What a delightful book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I could relate to it through my own experiences. The reading is light and humorous, and it takes a completely different approach to running. Very refreshing."
Colleen De Reuck— Professional runner
"There is wisdom behind the laughter! Bob Schwartz makes you smile as he reminds you that behind the science of running, there is a lot of laughs and luck! He encourages the runners with wit and revelations that years of running experience (and inexperience!) provide. I Run, Therefore I Am Nuts will reinforce every runner's love of the sport, and pride in their accomplishments. It's a fun read that I recommend to runners of all abilities."
Susan Kalish— Executive Director, The American Running Association
"Most runners take their sport seriously—sometimes too seriously. Bob Schwartz provides a refreshingly irreverent slant on a variety of topics to help keep a more balanced perspective. Take a run on the lighter side!"
Jeff Galloway— 1972 Olympian, 10,000m, Author of Galloway's Book on Running
"I Run Therefore I Am –NUTS!! is a highly entertaining read on every runner’s favorite subject: Running. Considered by many the Dave Barry of running, popular running humorist Bob Schwartz pokes fun at the quirky personalities of runners and the funny situations they encounter in training, eating, racing, preparing for races and revolving their everyday lives around running. Schwartz’s contribution is sure to be a hit with both recreational and competitive runners, many of whom are already big fans of his essays and stories from the many running related publications for which he writes. "
Dick Weisz— The Chicago Daily Herald
"The master of this genre is the veteran humorist and runner, Bob Schwartz. He has contributed to many running publications, including this one, and now his humorous insights are compiled into this very wonderful and humorous book. But there is more to the book than laughter (of which there is a lot!). Schwartz has been running and writing for years, and mixed in with all the funny stuff are generally valuable insights about all things running. We have a lot to learn from Schwartz’s experience and from his tremendous sense of humor."
