10,000 Steps a Day in L.A.: 52 Walking Adventures is for urban adventurers with a passion for healthy living who are also hungry to explore L.A.'s hidden, unsung, and sometimes quirky side. This unique guidebook provides everything readers need to venture out and tackle the city's 500 square miles.

The book is based on a concept that first took hold in Japan-that if people walked 10,000 steps each day, they would burn 20 percent of their caloric intake through that activity alone. Now an ingrained part of the American lifestyle, the 10,000 steps phenomenon is taking the country by storm; it is now a recognized daily goal by a number of major insurance companies like Kaiser Permanente and health institutes such as the World Health Organization, the U.S. Center for Disease Control, the U.S. Surgeon General, and the American Heart Foundation.

In this first-ever book to explore the 10,000 steps concept in the City of Angels, these walks take readers through the terrain that makes Los Angeles the envy of many a metropolis-beaches, mountains, rivers, and reservoirs, not to mention the nation's largest urban park, Griffith Park-all while immersing them in the city's history and lore, offbeat locales, and popular landmarks.

10,000 Steps a Day in L.A. promises three things: 10,000 steps in each walk, a blueprint for doing it each weekend of the year (52 walks equals a year's worth of weekends), and a sense of fun and discovery about L.A. that will only make the 10,000 steps goal that much easier to attain. Readers need bring only their feet-pedometers optional.


Paul Haddad was born in Hollywood, California. After graduating from USC's School of Cinema-TV, where he won an Emmy for his documentary thesis film, Haddad embarked on a career in television. Today, he is a television writer and the executive producer of documentaries for networks like the Discovery Channel, Nat Geo Wild, the Science Channel, and the Travel Channel.

Haddad's first book, High Fives, Pennant Drives, and Fernandomania: A Fan's History of the Los Angeles Dodgers' Glory Years 1977-1981, published in 2012, provides a look back at the Dodgers' last glory era through the radio calls of Hall of Fame announcer Vin Scully. It was chosen as one of the top baseball books of 2012 by the Daily News and earned praise from the L.A. Times, Fox Sports, NBC Sports, Yahoo!, ESPN Radio, and CBS Radio. In 2013, Haddad authored his first fiction book, Skinny White Freak, which he also illustrated.
