The Importance of Walking: A Journey to Elite Performance from Dublin to Monte Carlo
by Stephen Jungmann

The Importance of Walking explores how elite athletes and world-class performers are made, not born. Based on a true story, the main character’s passion for tennis explodes into his life from a glowing television screen in the summer of 1977 as Bjorn Borg is reaching the height of his powers at Wimbledon.
