Product description

Review

"Rowlands is a lovely writer, funny and moving. His philosophical thinking is easy to understand ... If you're of an optimistic bent, hopeful that life will offer up moments of wonder and delight, then Rowlands is your kind my kind of philosopher." --Miranda Sawyer, Observer

"An outstanding work of sports writing that shows clearly why running is about many things, but mostly about freedom and fun and why so many of us are hooked on it. Running With the Pack is life-affirming and gets straight to the heart of why running is has such an important place in our lives as it perfectly captures the essence of what happens when we lace up a pair of trainers and close the door behind us. Not only does tell a story that will be familiar to anyone who runs - be it a jog around the park or much further - it is an ideal and necessary introduction for anyone taking on their first marathon and wants to know just what they are getting themselves into." --Robin Harvie

"Rowlands' provoking thoughts will certainly spur more exploration."-Financial Times

"A powerful read, which weaves in ponderings on everything from ageing to the meaning of life. I defy anyone to read this and not be inspired to lace up their trainers."-Top Santé

"A real treat. It s a dense and serious philosophical examination of why we run and the value of it."-Runner's World

"Rowlands is really strong on how running makes us think"-Metro

"Rowland s argues that running returns us to something we have lost as humans in our pursuit of goals, material or otherwise." --Independent

'Exercise energises your thoughts, and reading this book is a bit like thinking while you run - about life, death, history... and running itself' --London Evening Standard
