"""Every true runner will get a laugh out of this book. Schwartz does a good job pointing out the wonderful absurdities of our sport."""
Five-time world-record holder
"""In this book, Bob Schwartz captures a unique spirit that every runner experiences regardless of fitness level. His perspective on running--a sport that can cause extreme moments of both glory and pain--is sharp, real, and very funny. Schwartz covers all the basics with a witty voice and a runner's hard-earned experience."""
Editor of Fitness Runner magazine
"""What a delightful book. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I could relate to it through my own experiences. The reading is light and humorous, and it takes a completely different approach to running. Very refreshing."""
Colleen De Reuck
"""There is wisdom behind the laughter! Bob Schwartz makes you smile as he reminds you that behind the science of running, there is a lot of laughs and luck! He encourages the runners with wit and revelations that years of running experience (and inexperience!) provide. I Run, Therefore I Am Nuts will reinforce every runner's love of the sport, and pride in their accomplishments. It's a fun read that I recommend to runners of all abilities."""
Executive Director, The American Running Association
"""Most runners take their sport seriously--sometimes too seriously. Bob Schwartz provides a refreshingly irreverent slant on a variety of topics to help keep a more balanced perspective. Take a run on the lighter side!"""
