Since best-selling motivational author Rath was diagnosed at 16 with a rare disease, he has lived with the threat of tumors. He learned how everyday decisions affected the length and quality of his life and shares the results of his voracious reading and research. His essential prescription for a longer and healthier life is, eat right, move more, sleep better. Each chapter focuses on three findings and ideas concerning those three basic ingredients of a good day. Among his observations: every bite of food or sip of a drink is a net gain or loss to health; excessive sitting promotes weight gain and contributes to diseases from diabetes to cancer; more and restful sleep, in concert with better eating habits and exercise, promises health and longevity. He counsels against diet and exercise crazes and the American myth that ties productivity to little sleep. Known for his work on enhancing potential in organizations, Rath has turned his talent to how the little decisions about mundane things, from what you eat to how you sleep, can have a significant impact on your life. --Vanessa Bush
