In his 20's, the author was diagnosed with a rare genetic condition. It shuts off his body's tumor-fighting capabilities, and makes it very easy for him to get cancer. While adjusting to a life of annual CT scans and MRI's and operations to remove small tumors, he became very interested in health and wellness. Here are some of the things he learned. The closest thing the human body has to a vaccine for the common cold is a good night's sleep. Permanently forget fad diets. Focus on eating the right foods. Look at the nutrition label of your favorite food or snack. If the sugar content is greater than 10 grams per serving, find an alternative. Carry a healthy standby snack wherever you go. Do not use your alarm's snooze button for an entire week. Then, see if you can stretch that week to permanently. Select restaurants based on how easy it is to order something healthy. If you are having trouble sleeping. try exercising for a few days before reaching for medication. Plan your days to eat more early in the day, less later in the day and nothing after supper. Identify something that regularly stresses you out. Work on a plan to keep it from happening. Limit yourself to no more than two hours of seated television daily. To get a really natural tan, eat more tomatoes and carrots. To improve your hair and skin, add some salmon and flax to your diet. Use vigorous exercise to clear your mind and body. Consider a new micro-activity, like parking far away from the door or taking the stairs. Replace all sugary drinks with water, coffee or other unsweetened drinks. Make sure you get at least eight hours of sleep every night. Last, but not least, be active every day; take a few more steps tomorrow than you did today. Sounds pretty easy, doesn't it? As with other books of this type, no one is expected to do everything in this book starting on the first day. Pick a few actions, and integrate them into your daily life, then pick a few more. This book is easy to read and follow, and is recommended for people from all parts of society.

Tom Rath makes this book personal, and he makes is easy to use. The introductory material provides background on Rath so you know his perspective on health and fitness. He explains up front that he isn't a doctor, but he uses his own scientific inquiry and research to provide simple, factual information to transform your life. The writing style is clear and easy to understand. Each chapter is very short and provides 3 specific things to do as you make changes. The book could be used as a 30-day guide to change your lifestyle. Each chapter provides tips to get more sleep, make healthier choices with food and nutrition or increase your daily activity level. Rath makes the case that you don't need to make huge changes. Rather simple, small changes that you stick with in your daily routine will add up over time and completely transform your life, body, healthy and happiness levels. It was easy to see why Rath is so passionate. It is also easy to follow his tips. You don't need fancy, expensive equipment or specialty items to makes these changes. As the book explains it's really common sense and the changes are sensible.

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.

Disclosure: I received complimentary products to facilitate this post. All opinions are my own. 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.

This book could have been written by anyone from the Obvious family. I read a lot of books on health and wellness, and this has been the most inferior thus far. I felt like I was reading a kid's sixth grade health class paper. None of the information in this book was new information to me. None! I could have learned more from Google or from the 11-year-old who lives across the street. Most of the information was repeated throughout the book, in an effort to extend its length I assume. Don't waste your money on this.
