Présentation de l'éditeur

A New York Times bestseller for 14 weeks in 1978, Running & Being became known as the philosophical bible for runners around the world. More than thirty years after its initial publication, it remains every bit as relevant today.

Written by the late, beloved Dr. George Sheehan, Running & Being tells of the author’s midlife return to the world of exercise, play and competition, in which he found “a world beyond sweat” that proved to be a source of great revelation and personal growth. But Running & Being focuses more on life than it does, specifically, on running. It provides an outline for a lifetime program of fitness and joy, showing how the body helps determine our mental and spiritual energies.

Drawing from the words and actions of the great athletes and thinkers throughout history, Sheehan ties it all together with his own philosophy on the importance of fitness and sport, as well as his knowledge of training, injury prevention, and race competition. Above all, Sheehan describes what it means to experience the oneness of body and mind, of self and the universe. In this, Sheehan argues, we have the power to discover “the truth that makes men free.”

il y a des chapitres que j'ai adorés... d'autres trop philosophiques pour moi.
donc il y en a que j'ai lu en travers... mais en gros les bons meritaient mon achat

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The only book in my library I reread!! 9 février 1999
Par gary.dotzler@intel.com - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
For the Sheehan neophyte, let me say this, this is NOT a book to learn how run better. It IS a book to become a better person. Dr. Sheehan is simply one of us; a runner who happens to write. The beauty of this book is that Sheehan doesn't candy coat his stories. He tells running as it is, as he is. You'll read this book and continually say, "My god, that's it, that's what I feel, that's how I am too." Soon, things you'd suspected about yourself, become clearer. Questions like, "Why do you run?", begin to have meaningful answers.
I have read tons about running and if I had to rank them, all Dr. Sheehan's books would be on the top of the list (But "R&B" is the best of his stuff, so start there). If you want the definitive book on all the technical details about running, get Glover's "Competetive Runner's Handbook" (make sure "Competetive" is in the title). If you want or need helping understanding life, read all of Sheehan's stuff. Heck those two books (Sheehan & Glover) are really all you need for years of PR's and spiritual growth.

Sheehan forges new ground in discussing running. Any serious runner will readily identify with his emotional insights and his ability to relate running and life. Truly inspiring at points, Sheehan goes well beyond running to a philosophy of life that can apply to any athlete.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The true 'runners high' 22 septembre 2008
Par Andrew Lubin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Imagine - a book on running that doesn't delve into the minutia of split times, hydration, or shoe color...Dr George Sheehan's fine book just talks about the joy of running.

Quoting Greek and other philosophers (which include his beer-drinking buddies on the Jersey shore) Sheehan writes of the midlife crisis that got him back on the roads again, and how running helped make him a better human being.

It was years later that science charted the endomorphins that proved Sheehan's point; he already knew the effect running had on improving his life. It improved other lives also; Dr Sheehan was a regular speaker at our varsity XC banquets back in the late 60's; and he was as entertaining and motivating in person as he was 10 years later in print.

These were by far the best and most interesting chapters for me. In fact, everything from chapter 9 onward was pretty good, but the first 8 were slow and kind of dragged on a bit.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A must for the thinking athlete 2 juin 2000
Par Albert Alvarez - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
I strongly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys philosophy and deep reflection on the meaning of life. I am not much of a reader but once I picked up this book I simply could not put it down. Sheehan has a way a putting together the pain and joy of sports and shows you how you cannot have one without the other. He reminds us that in order to gain the glory of sports, we must endure the pain which is sure to come every time we challenge ourselves. Every time I run, I am able to remember at least one line out of this very powerful book. This helps me to remember that I am not alone, at least not as a pain-enduring athlete.
