    It's not just about running.

    There is more to running than just one foot in front of the other. Mr. Finn covers many aspects of running in this short book, all the while from the perspective of the long-distance running culture in Japan - which I didn't know about at all until I read this book. It's also an interesting account of Japan through a Westerner's eyes. I recommend reading it.

    A good read; recommended.

    I enjoyed this book a lot. In a sense it is a somewhat awkward sequel to Running with the Kenyans, the premise that the Japanese are incredibly good at running but almost always runners up. That somehow sums up the book (a sort of runner-up to the very good book about Kenya). I enjoyed the reflections on how unusual life is in Japan for someone from the UK and how it affects the sport of running.
