calls “Walk, Don’t Run” ‘one of the most fun books I’ve read in a very long time’

In its review for Steven Jae Johnson’s Walk, Don’t Run: A Rockin’ and Rollin’ Memoir,, the online community for book lovers, called it “one of the most fun books I’ve read in a very long time.” The review praised the Mr. Johnson’s writing style — “almost makes you feel like he’s sitting across the table, sipping a beer and just talking about his life” — as well as the wonderful history the book explores — “a great job of transporting the reader back in time to when car clubs held dances and car hops served burgers and shakes right to your car.”

Other great snippets from the review include

  • “His use of the vernacular of the day (daddy-o) and nonchalant mention of details (like describing his friend’s Kinney’s loafers) makes for a rich backdrop to what starts out as a somewhat typical tale of local boys trying to make good.”
  • “The most important thing I learned from reading this book was never smoke a joint given to you by Keith Richards.”
  • “If you grew up during the 60’s, I think you will enjoy this book even more as it transports you back in time and reminds you how things were then. I enjoyed the ride, and I hope you will too, daddy-o.”
