Summary

Tras el éxito internacional El silencio en la era del ruido, Erling Kagge nos deleita con un libro sobre el placer de caminar. Libros que respiran y te hacen respirar.

«Casi todos los problemas parecen distintos después de un paseo

Al caminar, con o sin rumbo, nuestro cuerpo viaja a la velocidad de nuestra mente. Solo cuando damos un paso tras otro podemos descubrir la tierra que pisamos, y a nosotros mismos. La capacidad de andar erguidos nos convirtió en lo que somos, y al dejar de caminar abandonamos también nuestra esencia, nos convertimos en otra cosa.

Este libro, una agradable caminata en excelente compañía, nos recuerda la alegría de las caminatas, breves o largas, y nos convence de que quien va a pie llega más lejos y vive mejor. En el camino, nuestros pasos se cruzan con figuras como Machado, Heidegger, Thoreau, Neruda o Steve Jobs.
Erling Kagge, el autor que nos enseñó a encontrar el silencio en este estruendoso mundo, vuelve con un evocador libro sobre el placer y el equilibrio que se pueden encontrar en tan simple actividad.

ENGLISH DESCRIPTION

A lyrical account of an activity that is essential for our sanity, equilibrium, and well-being, from the author of Silence ("A book to be handled and savored." —The Wall Street Journal)

Placing one foot in front of the other, embarking on the journey of discovery, and experiencing the joy of exploration—these activities are intrinsic to our nature. Our ancestors traveled long distances on foot, gaining new experiences and learning from them. But as universal as walking is, each of us will experience it differently. For Erling Kagge, it is the gateway to the questions that fascinate him—Why do we walk? Where do we walk from? What is our destination?—and in this book he invites us to investigate them along with him. 

Language reflects the idea that life is one single walk; the word "journey" comes from the distance we travel in the course of a day. Walking for Kagge is a natural accompaniment to creativity: the occasion for the unspoken dialogue of thinking. Walking is also the antidote to the speed at which we conduct our lives, to our insistence on rushing, on doing everything in a precipitous manner—walking is among the most radical things we can do.
