4.0 out of 5 stars A great insight to Zen theory and application.
I've read a few books on Buddhism and have found it quite baffling. This book, however, has made some of the concepts much clearer to me by applying them directly to something I enjoy. Some chapters weren't relevant to me but, generally, the book was of great interest and full of practical ideas. I will definitely be running Zen style from now on.

3.0 out of 5 stars Over analysis
I love running, and I am deeply interested in Buddhism. However, by combining them, this book takes the fun out of both by over- analysing everything (and I mean everything and anything). Seriously- its message is essentially you can get your self to do anything by over analysing it. Cant help but feel the author was not at school on the day they said it's Ok to have a...

I love running, and I am deeply interested in Buddhism. However, by combining them, this book takes the fun out of both by over- analysing everything (and I mean everything and anything). Seriously- its message is essentially you can get your self to do anything by over analysing it. Cant help but feel the author was not at school on the day they said it's Ok to have a break now and then and do what you love.

So... nice sentiment, but over cooked.

Great resource. having read many books regarding different training schedules etc it was a breath of fresh air i.e. not another schedule but more ideas which could be used in any schedule and indeed alone. Training for the mind!!

1.0 out of 5 stars I really like the idea of combining running and spirituality, 20 April 2015

I really like the idea of combining running and spirituality. I had great hopes for this book. However this book is very dull. The spirituality that I read about before I gave up seemed to be very basic CBT. In no way inspiring.

I incorrectly believed there was not much one could write about running and attitude towards it. Certainly not enough to fill a book. However this was an a good read & what the author mentions seems to make sense. It's improved my running. Enjoyed it.

This review is from: Zen and the Art of Running: The Path to Making Peace with Your Pace (Kindle Edition)
A great read, not really got into the swing of it while out running, but will be giving it a go. Refreshing thoughts on training.

2.0 out of 5 stars great start but fades away, 28 Aug. 2013

This review is from: Zen and the Art of Running: The Path to Making Peace with Your Pace (Kindle Edition)
The sample is great and hooked me, so i bought it. Very dissappoinrig, as after the sample it gets a bit, well, just boring and repetitive. I dont think its value for money. Lots of content that doesnt quite fit wit the book, more general tips. Perhaps its to bolster the content. Either way, in the end I didnt get past the first few chapters. Shame.
