George A. Sheehan (November 5, 1918 – November 1, 1993) was a physician, senior athlete and author best known for his writings about the sport of running

George A. Sheehan (November 5, 1918 – November 1, 1993) was a physician, senior athlete and author best known for his writings about the sport of running. His book, "Running & Being: The Total Experience," became a New York Times best seller. He was a track star in college, and later became a cardiologist like his father. He served as a doctor in the United States Navy in the South Pacific during World War II on the destroyer USS Daly (DD-519).

George Sheehan was a legend of running and running literature. I bought the book hoping for tips on running technique and found very little, but I read on, captivated by his beliefs, the connections he makes to his life and his fearless confessions of feeling inadequate in non-running settings. Much has stuck with me: I recommend this book to anyone working on running.

I use to run, and I still enjoyed reading Dr. Sheehan. Have a dictionary by your side because he has a large vocabulary. The book was still readable despite it falling apart.

Timeless advice. I recommend it to all runners and non-runners. I wish I met Dr. Sheehan when he was still alive. He inspires me to continue being active 40+ age, and looking forward to the "golden years".

I bought this book many years ago and read it then (sometime in the early 1980's). I am now ordering as a gift for a nephew as he is a distance runner in his mid-30's. I am re-reading it and I can only say if anyone can order any type of copy, I highly recommend doing so. Dr. Sheehan was such a great runner, writer, and philosopher about life. It is too bad he died on Nov. 1, 1993 as he was truly an amazing and insightful human being. He is sorely missed to this day.

This is one of the all time classic fitness books. Full of common sense and personal experience, Dr. Sheehan was filled with wisdom on physical fitness. He talks of working out and balancing physical work with mental activity. The secrets to staying young are in this book.

I am a former runner who is just starting to get back into running again after a long break. Reading this book was so enjoyable that I struggled to put it down. It is not so much a how to book but more of an essay on what runners experience on many levels during a run.
