Publisher Description

An intimate look at writing, running, and the incredible way they intersect, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running is an illuminating glimpse into the solitary passions of one of our greatest artists.

While training for the New York City Marathon, Haruki Murakami decided to keep a journal of his progress. The result is a memoir about his intertwined obsessions with running and writing, full of vivid recollections and insights, including the eureka moment when he decided to become a writer. By turns funny and sobering, playful and philosophical, here is a rich and revelatory work that elevates the human need for motion to an art form.

Good read

Really good read about running and handling life

Unusual reviewer ,

It's meant for everybody

Although it may be easy to assume that this book is only for runners but after having read this book I am applying Murakami's life principles to wok and my personal situations. I am a runner but I have learned so much more about applying discipline, focus, dedication, passion, drive, and most importantly joy in every aspect of my life. This book is highly recommended for all ages and all fitness levels.
