Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Stutman, a physician and author of The Doctor's Walking Book, etc., provides solid information about the benefits of walking, complete with suggestions for losing and maintaining weight and selecting walking shoes, a chart to count calories consumed by exercise and tips for walking while on trips and at conferences. He intersperses well-written, albeit pompous, advice on why one must stay in shape with quotes on walking from the likes of Thomas Jefferson, Thoreau and Hippocrates, and mildly amusing cartoons and illustrations. Stutman devotes an inordinate amount of space to denigrating joggingalmost 80 pageswith such section headings as ``Have You Ever Seen a Jogger Smile?'' and ``Other Jogging Jeopardies.'' This is fast-paced readingeven for nonwalkerswith frequent, interesting references to articles on health, diet and exercise in consumer magazines and medical journals. (November 30)
