I also Pre ordered today and am a Sparker =) (maureen4music) I first heard about Sparkpeople in a comment for a cookbook review by a fellow sparker here at Amazon. By far sparkpeople.com offers the most successful and practical life changing tips and tools anyone can ask for in one place and it's FREE!

I will be preordering as well, I'm just trying to figure out how many copies to order for family and friends! Thanks to Spark People I have lost 100 lbs, and have gone from a totally sedentary life to running my first Marathon in 2 weeks!

Hi everyone - I'm the author of The Spark. Well, really many people are the author since we have so many amazing member stories in the book and all of the experts on our team helped put this together. Thanks so much for pre-ordering. By working together to reach our own goals, support and motivate each other, and then spread the spark, we have a great chance to make a major impact on the world!

SparkCheers!

I pre-ordered the book. I know I will love the book the same as I love the web site, SparkPeople. Anyone out there who hasn't joined, better do so. It is an amazing place to get healthy, lose weight and make friends who will encourage you. I am yafenelra

Angie says:
Is there anything here we can't find on the website?

SP Tami says:
Hi -- I'm Tami from SparkPeople. In answer to Angie's question 'is there anything here we can't find on the website?' the answer is yes! The book is based on similar principles as the website, yet the book is almost all new content. We did a major member poll to find out exactly what our most successful members did to lose their weight (about half of our 'successful' members who responded lost 100 pounds or more) and we included those 'secrets of success' in the book to increase members odds of success. We also used those 'secrets' and combined them with sparkpeople philosophy, latest in science, and created a 28-day plan that is new and only in the book. This book is a great way for people who already use the site to keep the momentum going, to get to new levels of success, and simply to be inspired. There are lots of inspirational stories of members throughout the book. Hope this helps!

In my 50+ years, I've probably read every diet book on the planet. But "The Spark" will be a unique, memorable addition. How could it not be, with the generous, creative, and genuinely altruistic Chris Downie at the company's helm? He's provided us all with a website that's teeming with first-rate information on nutrition, exercise, and wellness, one which continually delivers a powerhouse of new content! And then there's his warm, delightful, and highly devoted staff... not to mention that positive, energetic gang of SparkPeople who are gratefully thriving in this fabulous climate! So, I can't wait to get my mitts on this read!

I can't wait to get this book - yes, I pre-ordered and yes I am a happy, successful member of SparkPeople for almost 2 years. Chris Downie created an amazing website for health and weight loss. I have NO DOUBT that this book will be worth the wait.

I am a sparker and I did pre order the book. I can't believe we are now #12 on the best seller charts here at Amazon !! Can't wait till we hit #1 !! WooHoo

I'm a Sparker and pre-ordered the book. I'm so excited! I went from being a borderline obese smoker to completing a marathon and running good times in half-marathons. I've been maintaining my weight loss for 2 years now. I've also accomplished a lot of other major goals (paid off all my credit cards, finished my degree, etc...) using the tools and principles that I've found on SparkPeople. Thanks SparkGuy (and all of your staff)! Can't wait for the book!
