Synopses & Reviews
Once in a while, a book comes along that changes how you think, feel, and act every day.
In Eat Move Sleep, #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath delivers a book that will improve your health for years to come. While Toms bestsellers on strengths and well-being have already inspired more than 5 million people in the last decade, Eat Move Sleep reveals his greatest passion and expertise.
Quietly managing a serious illness for more than 20 years, Tom has assembled a wide range of information on the impact of eating, moving, and sleeping. Written in his classic conversational style, Eat Move Sleep features the most proven and practical ideas from his research. This remarkably quick read offers advice that is comprehensive yet simple and often counterintuitive but always credible.
Eat Move Sleep will help you make good decisions automatic in all three of these interconnected areas. With every bite you take, you will make better choices. You will move a lot more than you do today. And you will sleep better than you have in years.
More than a book, Eat Move Sleep is a new way to live.
"Gallup senior scientist and prolific business author Rath (Strengthfinder 2.0) explores how diets, exercise regimens, and sleep choices influence our health. Rath, diagnosed at age 16 with a life-threatening genetic disorder, draws from personal experiences as well as research, asserting that 'small decisions about how you eat, move and sleep each day count more than you think.' He offers practical tips to make long-lasting behavior changes and, in an encouraging, conversational tone, urges readers to 'forget fad diets, forever,' 'make inactivity your enemy,' and 'sleep longer to get more done.' He also emphasizes the importance of incremental changes, ranging from ideas on 'product placement' in the home, getting a device to track steps, and using smaller plates to combat overeating. Snappy titles like 'Family style is making us fat,' energize the short, punchy chapters and add levity to what could be daunting behavioral changes. While much of Rath's advice is common-sense, his willingness to share his personal struggles makes this an easy, persuasive read for those trying to correct self-sabotaging behavior or adopt a healthy lifestyle.
