'Walking 10,000 steps a day-roughly five miles-is a popular health mantra that Paul Haddad married with the idea of exploring unfamiliar parts of the Southland in his book, 10,000 Steps a Day in L.A.'-Arin Mikailian, Glendale News-Press'Los Angeles is the perfect place to walk and Angelenos are embracing it. Realtors tout walkability indexes. Road diets are making biking and walking easier. Pedestrians are being given priority in city planning. And finally, our weather is second to none. The book charts out 52 easy walks you can take-one for each weekend of the year.'-Nancy Cruz, KTLA-5 News'In his book, 10,000 Steps a Day in L.A., Paul Haddad does something pretty special: he gives you 52 walking adventures and he introduces you to hidden Los Angeles-those places that you drive by, fly over, and otherwise don't even realize they are there. You can strap on your FitBit (or other apparatus of choice) and get out and explore. . . . Going through the different tours, I found a few that I put on the top of my list of family outings.'-This Talk Ain't Cheap blog'Beyond burning calories, each walk is a cultural wakeup call of 52 area locations.'-Lori Corbin, ABC-7 News
