《The Zen of running》读者评论：
I bought my copy of this one in 1975, shortly after it's publication. My old copy is about worn out. This is a very quick read with some beautiful black and white photographs. The writing is right out of the late 60s and early 70s. My wife calls it my "Hippy Running Book." It is quite, for me, inspirational and that is what it was written for. I have to laugh at times. I see (and am passed) by the younger crowd now, wearing their expensive running shoes, running clothing, running watches, running heart monitors, running glasses, running water bottles, running snacks, etc., etc., and wonder "why?" I know I am getting old but do hope I never loose the spirit this book so well voices and the spirit in which we all ran in those past days. Recommend this one to all serious runners and all not so serious runners, at least those that do not take themselves all that serious.
Having been a runner now for nearly four decades, I remember buying this book when it first came out and thinking 'Wow - I'd never thought of it that way before.' As someone who was consumed with the approach to running that getting faster as a distance runner was what it was all about, this book introduced me to the idea that running was more than my mile time. If you're looking for x's and o's of how to get faster on the roads or on the track, or if you're one of the lemmings being sucked into marathon running, this book is probably not for you. If, on the other hand, you'd like to get a taste of the sense of enjoyment and mental and physical health that can come from the simple act of running, you will want to read this unique book. Amazing photos, clear concise writing. I don't think the term VO2 Max ever shows up, but it sure made me want to go run for an hour on the beach.
