“Life-affirming stuff.” —National Geographic Traveler
“Impressive.” —Daily Telegraph
“Philosopher Gros ponders walking, that most mundane mode of transportation or exercise, elevating it to its rightful place in inspiring creativity, evoking freedom, and quieting a troubled soul.” —Booklist
“This elegant book inspires consideration of an oft-overlooked subject.” – Publisher's Weekly
"Frédéric Gros asks why so many of our most productive writers and philosophers – Rousseau, Kant, Rimbaud, Robert Louis Stevenson, Nietzsche, Jack Kerouac – have also been indefatigable walkers … there are certain magical things that happen on the trail, and Gros is familiar with them. He thinks like a hiker."— Financial Times
"An admirable little book which will delight even the most sedentary."—Le Monde
