Publisher's Summary

What if we can make ourselves, our communities, and our planet healthier all at the same time by moving our bodies more?

Movement Matters is a collection of essays in which biomechanist Katy Bowman continues her groundbreaking investigation of the mechanics of our sedentary culture and the profound potential of human movement. Here she widens her message and invites us to consider our personal relationship with sedentarism, privilege, and nature. Bowman explores:

  • How convenience often means less movement, not more time
  • The missing movement nutrients in our food
  • How to include more nature in education
  • The impact of adding movement to permaculture and ecological models
  • Our need for vitamin community and group movement

Unapologetically direct, often hilarious, and always compassionate, Movement Matters demonstrates that human movement is powerful and important, and that living a movement-filled life is perhaps the most joyful and efficient way to transform your body, community, and world.

    "Another amazing and thought provoking book"

    I have read / listened to all of Katy's books and although this one is quite different, it was another fantastic book. There are no exercises to follow in this book but many suggestions as to how we can 'stack our lives' to move more and generally accomplish more whilst limiting the effect of our choices on the planet and all those that inhabit it.

    I am sure that I will listen to this several times, something that I have only ever done once before and that was for 'Move Your DNA'

    Katy again reads the book herself which I think enhances the messages.

    Story
    "Waffle"

    I've read half of this and switched off. I've found it to be a load of waffle, discussing the very obvious, with a little interesting science along the way. I guess if you're just starting off on a journey of healthier living, this might serve as a good introduction.

    "Eye-opening, life-changing, and accessible."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I have and will recommend this audiobook to many friends. Katy Bowman's writing has always been transformative for my body, and this book, should we read it and take its message to heart, will transform the earth's body as well. This is far from an exercise book--it's a critique of our entire sedentary culture, as well as a map for changing it.


    Any additional comments?

    The performance is fantastic and the blooper reel at the end is a hilarious bonus!

    "Bowman 2020!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Movement Matters to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version


    What did you like best about this story?

    Katy Bowman might be my favorite audio author thus far. Her voice carries an inflection that would make reading the ingredient list on a cereal box sound interesting. Coupled with her hands-on experience and real life usage, her books are spot on.


    Have you listened to any of Katy Bowman’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to all of Katy Bowman's books, and her latest, Movement Matters, is just as great as the previous ones.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Katy has a knack of narrating which makes the listener feel as though they are in the same room, having a face to face conversation. She's honest about opinion vs. fact based science, and isn't afraid to admit, "here is the information, take it as you will"


    Any additional comments?

    Ready for book 4!
