This book attempts to be humorous by pointing out the oddities in the life of a runner. Unfortunately, it illustrated a few scenarios that hit too close to home and felt embarrassing - more like boldly announcing our dirty laundry. The stories might be funny for some, but not for me.

This review was written for LibraryThing Early Reviewers.
Recently, I started reading the American humorist, S. J. Perelman. I quickly threw it down out of boredom, discovered a volume of Saki, and devoured that instead. There's a difference between corn and wit.

This book of running essays, is as corny as it gets. For example, I haven't seen so many ditties "sung to the tune of " - since reading Mad Magazine. Nor is Schwartz's 42-essay collection very informative about running and running culture. This may be a good selection for a pre-teen, male, interested in running. But I'm not sure it would hold the interest of any others interested in the sport. ( )

I have to say that this book did not make me laugh. I was very hopeful because a humorous approach to one of my main interests is always welcome. As I read through I Run, Therefore I am STILL Nuts! I could not help think that the humor was forced.

It was the equivalent of having a conversation with that person who repeats the same corny jokes over and over. Now imagine being at a party where everyone is like that! "Is it Tuesday, today?" "All day! Haha." Um, yeah, thanks bud. Not very witty.

There were some nuggets of wisdom in the writing but this is geared toward the novice runners. The illustrations were well done.

I'm sorry to say that I did not like this book. I was glad that the chapters were short and that there were illustrations every few pages. ( )

This is NOT a book for non-runners. With that said, I found the book a light, fun book that is often humorous. There are 42 chapters, none longer than 6 pages. A perfect book to keep lying around for a quick read. You can flip thru and find a topic to read about or just read from front to back. This book would be a perfect gift for the beginning or expert runner. ( )

Bob Schwartz is back with a followup to his first book and it's filled with more
laughs and groans of recognition. If you enjoyed "I Run Therefore I Am Nuts!",
grab a copy of "I Run Therefore, I Am Still Nuts!"! If you haven't read either, what are you waiting for?!
If you are or have ever been a runner, or even if you're not but you are closely related to one,
you need to read both these books. You will undoubtably see yourself (or your loved one) in many of the
chapters, many with a good laugh, some with a groan. I haven't been running for quite some time but I
still relate to so much of his books and it also inspires me to get back on the roads. ( )
