Running With Zoe


Dr. John Kilbourne’s recent book, Running With Zoe: Conversations On The Meaning Of Sport, is the product of a lifetime of coaching, working with athletes and thinking about sports issues. Most of the book’s chapters take the form of “conversations” which illuminate some aspect of sport. Professor Kilbourne’s partners in these conversations include members of the Canadian National Figure Skating Team, the late sports journalist Howard Cosell and the author’s 7-year old daughter, Zoe. Like many sections of the book, the opening chapter of Running With Zoe, entitled “Prelude,” draws on Professor Kilbourne’s own experiences.
