Although common sense tells us living longer is a good thing, these are not common times. Ours is a time of epidemics caused by the ways we learn to live life. It is not just cardiovascular diseases, diabetes, and cancers that are the products of our lifestyle. Rates of suicide are increasing, propelled by ways of living that are making us unhappy, more depressed, and more anxious than previous generations. These lifestyle diseases are infecting children and tearing apart the fabric of society as evidenced by the rise of bullying, hazing, and corporate corruption. Exercise, Life, and Love is the book for our time because it is a book about how to live a life that is truly vital and meaningful.
