These guys know what works, and they’ve got pedometers on the brain. During the last ten years, pedometer use has grown exponentially. ‘Step counting’ broke into the exercise vocabulary when Oprah started sporting her own pedometer, and the mania has only grown. Ten years ago there were five pedometers on the market; today there are dozens. But what to do with them? Hearing the cries for solid information, authors David R Bassett and Mark Fenton have stepped up. Covered in this guide are a history of step counting – Jefferson was a fan, and a pedometer was designed by Leonardo da Vinci – advice on choosing a pedometer, and a guide to starting a pedometer program, with looks at successful ones in the US, Australia, and Europe.

    Great pedometer book

    It’s So Simple
    My first thought when I saw this book was, ” what a stupid book -who needs a book about how to operate a pedometer.

    Good – but not a great deal of ‘meat’ to chew on
    This is a good book to get enthusiastic about walking to stay fit and lose weight. However it must be said that the book does stretch out the “limited” content quite a bit.

    A good starter.
    I bought it for my mom along with a pedometer. Seems an easy read with sensible, easy-to-follow directions. Too bad it doesn’t do the walking for her.

    It’s a motivator
    Having this pedometer in my pocket at all times has motivated me to walk at least 10,000 steps per day, and I’ve lost 8 lbs over the last 4 weeks.

    Do not confuse the book with the device
    I love my pedometer, purchased after seeing Fenton in Supersize Me. I love it so much, I bought 6 Omrons in recent weeks to give to good friends. But the book – whoa!
