[ Are you someone that: ]

  • likes walking to the store (and not just for exercise)

  • walks home when others drive

  • rides a bike to work

  • doesn't get the obsession with 4 bedrooms and 3 baths in the suburbs

If so, then I encourage you to read my book.

Why I Walk is a personal story of the benefits of living in a walkable neighborhood. In the book I describe the benefits in four discrete categories: Financial, Freedom, Health and Social. The book provides a window in my life and to others who live like me. And, it hopefully explains to those that don't understand just why this is such a great way to live.

Why I Walk, published by New Society Publishers, is available by clicking here or here. The Goodreads page is here.
