The positive role that walking plays in transforming people’s lives may seem a familiar theme, but through personal experience and in-depth research Canadian writer Dan Rubinstein analyses how walking can counteract modern epidemics like obesity, anxiety, stress and even climate change. His research is meticulous and the detailed but very readable text is full of thought-provoking interviews and examples, including many from Britain, showing how walking is a force for good.
