Let's keep walking... Dec 26, 2008
I found this book very interesting since he picked 50 different people who all had one thing in common, walking. This book is refreshing and a page turner. It's also great to read and study in small groups. I really enjoyed how each chapter ended with a thought to ponder. This book will help you learned about the great creative people in our history and how they continued to keep walking.
