    The Incomplete Book of Running Reviews

  • Kate

    4 stars for the running parts. 2 stars for the frankly off-putting way Sagal writes about his ex-wife and daughters, as well as pretty much all other women (except for his current wife - she seemed li...

  • Van Reese

    As a long time runner, I was very pleased to win this book in a give away (thank you Simon & Shuster). The only negative, I felt, was that he talks about his divorce; a lot. It was painful, so O.K. We...

  • Andrea

    I love the saying he recounted: if you can't play sports, run. If you can't run, run long. I can relate. I'm a fan of Wait Wait and thought this book was entertaining. Peter Sagal talks about his runn...

    Peter Sagal's slim memoir about running through the turmoil of his own life and the turmoil of the world at large is entertaining and perfectly captures the radio host's voice and sensibility. I was s...

  • Grant Den Herder

    Loved this book! I went into this one thinking it would be a humorous take on running; instead, Peter Sagal takes us through all of the highs and lows of life and how running has made an impact throug...

  • Jan Van Bruaene

    I didn't know what to expect about this book. I only know about Peter Sagal from NPR Wait Wait Don't Tell me Show. And I heard he co-wrote the less than stellar movie Dirty Dancing Havana Nights. He w...
