In Praise of Walking
By Shane O'Mara, this informative and persuasive book would 'rouse the most ardent couch potato' according to New Scientist magazine. Walking upright on two feet is a uniquely human skill which defines us as a species, frees our hands and our minds to carry out other tasks such as growing and cooking our food, and it's good for the brain too.
