Review:
"[P]erfect for the armchair walker....The loping pace of this book, comparable to the act of walking itself, invites time for trivia, and there is a lot in these pages."

D. T. Max, New York Times Book Review, 12/14/2008

Review:
"A quirky miscellany with which anyone can pass several pleasant hours..."

Jeffrey Burke, Newsday (Long Island, N.Y.), 01/11/2009
