A brilliant book... even if you are not a runner!!, 21 Oct 2013
I was given this book, as a keen runner.... but this is not a running book it is a life book.
To some degree being a runner does help you to understand it, but you don't need to be a runner and you certainly don't need to be a good runner - the author himself admits he is no great runner.
Running with the Pack is about how to live our lives and be happy. The insights are based on the work of great philosophers and how their work is relevant to how we live our lives and how we can be happier in these lives. There are a lot of "self-help" books out there that offer "paths to happiness". That is not what this is, it is not a "self-help" book (as I understand them), it is not about following someone else's guide to life, it is about seeing life differently.
I think everyone in the world should at least read the last chapter of this book and preferably read the whole book.
Buy it. Enjoy it. Enjoy life. (And maybe run)!
