The Athlete's Way: Training Your Mind and Body to Experience the Joy of Exercise by Christopher Bergland

"The Athlete's Way is amazingly informative and complete with a program to get and keep you off the couch. Bravo, for another exercising zealot who has written a book that should be read on your elliptical or stationary bike. He pushed me to go farther on a sleepy Sunday."
- John J. Ratey, M.D., author of Spark: The Revolutionary New Science in Exercise and the Brain, and co-author of Driven to Distraction

There are simple books about exercise, and there are transcendent ones- this is the latter. The author details his extensive experience at being at peak experience, achieving an enviable state of bliss and connection, the ultimate "flow state." This book connects the dots from a lot of other chronicles of flow state, and is exhaustive in showing what this all means and how to get there. Not for the casual mover, this is more akin to moving meditation, and reaching for something far greater than just simple exercising to feel better. Recommended for those seeking higher goals.
