Over the years I've published a number of e-books, pdf's of some of the more popular blog posts and a full-length book called "Why I Walk: Taking a Step in the Right Direction." Information on all items, including ordering, is available by scrolling down.
explaining why you enjoy walking and biking to your family and friends?
people that don't understand the value of walkable neighborhoods?
doing the math for friends and family on driving less?
If so, then I encourage you to buy my book.
Mayor Knox White, of Greenville, SC says about it:
"Kevin…..Just meant to tell you how much I enjoyed your book, “Why I walk.” I like the way you blended your personal thoughts with those of others. Your message resonated with me—and, yes, I have changed a few habits as a result!!"
Jeremy Senko, of Spacing.ca writes:
"The book is literally filled with humor and optimism. I could imagine that Klinkenberg sat down every night to pen a little more of his short book after a brisk walk fired him up with endorphins, a feeling that was contagious and present on every page."
Why I Walk is a personal story of the benefits of living in a walkable neighborhood. In the book I describe the benefits in four discrete categories: Financial, Freedom, Health and Social. The book provides a window in my life and to others who live like me. And, it hopefully explains to those that don't understand just why this is such a great way to live.
I've packaged a few of the more popular posts over the years into a more attractive pdf, booklet format. These are free for you to download and enjoy.
