Over millions of years humanity has evolved, our world has expanded, our communities have flourished and our art has inspired. It is with one action that this growth was sparked – the act of walking. The moment that humanity placed one foot in front of the other was when our lives first began to change.

Perfect Motion is an examination of the act of walking and the revolutionary effects this motion has on humanity. Anthropology, science and history come to life as we learn how each stride makes us wiser, accelerates our creativity and provides new perspectives.

Jono Lineen combines investigative science journalism and anthropology with his own remarkable story. Through tales of tragedy and triumph, drama and suspense – from being kidnapped while working for Medecins sans Frontieres to the quiet contemplation of watching his child take his own first steps – he reveals the extraordinary power of walking.

Each of these moments reveal how walking is essential to the human experience. It is our Perfect Motion.
