Peter Sagal, host of NPR’s most popular show, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, is a really funny guy. If you don’t listen to the weekly news quiz show on your local NPR affiliate (KPCC here in southern California), you’re missing what could be the funniest hour of the week, as Peter and his three rotating guest comedians dissect the strangest news of the past seven days. As he and the Wait Wait team travel from city to city, he’s actually on the run. In Peter’s new book, The Incomplete Book of Running, we learn not only about running as a sometimes impossibly difficult experience, but of course as an emotional exercise as well. And because it’s written by Peter Sagal, it’s often really really funny. Couch potatoes, make no mistake: this isn’t really a book about running—it’s about discovery—about place, about self, and where we go, why we go there, and what it takes to get there.
