If you're unhappy with your life and don't know where to start, Eat Move Sleep is a great resource. If you're overall happy with your lifestyle but want to make sure you shouldn't tweak anything for optimal health, it's still a good book to read. The only thing I didn't really like was the no-holds-barred approach to some things (such as sweets; I believe a few in moderation are ok, but the author takes the approach that food either hurts or helps and since sweets don't help they must hurt). But otherwise, it was a great comprehensive guide. It's divided into days, with just three things to tackle each day, although you might want to spread it out a little farther to really help habits stick before diving into a new one if it works for you. But it's written in pretty easy-to-understand but not condescending tone, and the tips are accessible by anyone, no matter what your current health level. My favorite part is that it focuses on all three elements together - healthy eating, good amount of sleep, and healthy movement (and brings up the point that working out isn't enough if you just sit the rest of the day) for a complete picture of health.

Full disclosure: I love this kind of stuff, and I read a lot of it. Not much in Rath's book was new to me. But I like how Rath presents these ideas in tiny snippets--small enough that even the laziest of us can pick up one small idea and run with it. I'd highly recommend it to the healthy living newbie. Buy a copy, put it in the bathroom or on the breakfast table, and challenge yourself to take on one small change a week.
