Reviews: Having been a runner now for nearly four decades, I remember buying this book when it first came out and thinking ’Wow - I’d never thought of it that way before.’ As someone who was consumed with the approach to running that getting faster as a distance runner was what it was all about, this book introduced me to the idea that running was more than my mile time. If you’re looking for x’s and o’s of how to get faster on the roads or on the track, or if you’re one of the lemmings being sucked into marathon running, this book is probably not for

Creator of the mono-maniacal Wile E.

Unlike Walt

Poverty in Africa is largely the outcome of slow growth.

The message of this book is clear poverty-eradicating development in Africa is possible. In fact, there are indications that Africa is at a turning point, and there is growing momentum among front-runner economies in the region toward higher and sustained growth.
