The Way of the Runner bookcover

The Way of the Runner: A Journey Into the Fabled World of Japanese Running
by Adharanand Finn

I learned a great deal from this book, not only about the culture of running in Japan but about Japan in general. The author has a nuanced way of looking at complexities like “culture,” and I like the lack of judgement as he captures the frustrations of his Japanese sojourn as well as the happy moments. I also like his answer to the perennial question of “Why do we run?” You’ll have to read the book to find out what that answer is.
