    Mike Walsh is one of the world’s leading authorities on the geographic nuances of rented footwear. His book, "Bowling Across America", stands alone as the single best in its genre. Literally alone, as the bowling-themed travel memoir genre has yet to be joined.

Walsh lives in Chicago with his wife Amy and their two children.
