  • review: Interesting way to present what is essentially a biological phenomenon - walking. There's physics, chemistry, biology - of course, but also lots of practical mix-match between these. Educational in the sense of presenting a way of thinking how disciplines flow into one another at the face of a problem. The writing was difficult and dry at times, but the overall pacing was good and the topic was handled well. At the end of it all, I did learn something new about walking, and its various forms such as flying, slithering, contracting, expanding, floating, and so on.,
