Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Romanelli, a Yahoo! blogger and co-founder of a "progressive" Phoenix, Ariz. yoga studio, shares his Zen approach to happiness in this guide to the care and feeding of a live-the-moment lifestyle: "Everyday, if you can enjoy one delicious moment...you will soon recognize a meaningful life is no further away than a box of chocolates... your walk to work, and a little... laughter." With an informal voice and a game sense of humor, Romanelli shares encounters from his own life-visiting a psychic, lessons learned from a toy poodle-that each come to worthy conclusion, reinforcing his point that peace comes from observation and appreciation, not money or "the view from your balcony." Though a balcony might seem to be a good spot for reflection, Romanelli charges through such minor contradictions, advocating exercises like a daily "spring cleaning" of the mind, and engineering "Now Point" memories-"the moments that stand out in your mind... when change happens, where paths intersect"-using the power of the senses. This lighthearted overview of awareness should provide seekers many ideas; accomplished yogis probably need not apply, though they should enjoy Romanelli's enthusiasm: "A moment, thoroughly enjoyed, takes you drifting through the past, sailing across the present, coasting into the future."

Review

Praise for Yeah Dave’s Guide to Livin’ the Moment:

"Livin' large in the moment changes everything! I loved this book!"
—Shaquille O'Neal, 4-time NBA Champion

"My golf game lives and dies by my ability to be present. I learned more about living in the moment in this book than any coach, book, or video combined. And the fact that the book is hilarious makes it one for the ages. I'm definitely going to recommend it to the other guys on the tour."
—Jonathan Kaye, PGA golfer, champion 2004 Phoenix FBR Open, 2003 Buick Classic

“This smart and funny book reminds us that finding one’s passion, activating joy, and risking all for love are holy endeavors worthy of pursuing in this sometimes crazy, and often stressful world.”

—Seane Corn, yoga teacher, cofounder of “Off the Mat, Into the World”


“David Romanelli is bringing an infusion (or one could say an explosion) of new energy to the world of wellness and self-help. His insight is profound, his perspective is energizing, and his stories are nothing short of hysterical. This book is a must-read for fans of the genre and a warm (if not fiery) welcome to those who would usually steer clear of a self-help manual.”

—Mallika Chopra, Founder, Intent.com

"This book is in my Top Ten list for most impactful books I've ever read. It's right alongside Eckhart Tolle’'s The Power of Now. For people who are seeking deeper meaning but don't want their insight shoved down their throat, this book provides sweet indulgences of laughter, fun, and deep, soul-satisfying inspiration. With tongue-in-cheek humor, it really convinced me to spend less time emailing, calling, hustling, and worrying...and more time in the moment. I'm making everyone in my company read this book and there's no twisting arms when chocolate, wine, and music are the name of the game."

—Katrina Markoff, Entrepreneur magazine and Open American Express’ 2007 Woman Entrepreneur of the Year, and founder of Vosges Haut-Chocolat

"Being a fan of David's 'Schtick' newsletter, I was hoping to find the book just as entertaining and insightful. I was not disappointed! I found this book to be laugh-out-loud funny while at the same time addressing serious issues in a profound way. David's combination of self-deprecating humor and hilarious recounting of his life experiences make this insightful book a joy to read. David illustrates that personal and spiritual growth don't always have to be somber experiences, but can be filled instead with many of life's pleasures. He is truly a modern day yogi with a unique, approachable, inimitable style." --Carrie Nuttall, photographer

My most favorite quote from the book. The book is soooooo chock full of nuggets of wisdom and great humor. I work with newly diagnosed cervical cancer patients and I will now recommend this book as part of their healing through humor method of recovery! Thanks for an awesome book Dave. It's just what we all need to brighten our day and make the most of ALL of our moments.

I first purchased this book at my summer Yoga Studio (YogaNine / LBI and Smithville NJ). I must admit that I did so with slight trepidation. However, it took about 2 minutes reading the first chapter (on the beach) to set me free.

I`ve been practicing yoga for the past 2 years. It has helped me beyond my wildest expectations. I am a 47 year old baby boomer. Prior to taking up yoga, I was 35 pounds overweight and about to be prescribed with both cholesterol and high blood pressure medications. After the first year, I lost 30 pounds and completely eliminated my cholesterol and high blood pressure issues (too bad I couldn't save my hair!).

You're probably wondering, what the hell does this have to do with Dave's book? Well, quite frankly, I think I might write a book called "Yeah Dave..... So am I".
You don't have to have ever taken Yoga or care about Yoga to love this book. Rest assured, if you have not practiced Yoga, you might give it a try after reading this book. Once I started reading, I could not put it down. I cannot articulate how many of us have grown up (or not) with the life of Dave as explained in this book.
Dave has caused me to take a step back from being a CEO of two companies, three children, crazy wife, the dog, cat, bird, bunny, fish (2), hermit crabs (4) and be at peace with myself and my surroundings.

I purchased 4 more books for my friends!

GO DAVE!

I took Dave's Yoga +Chocolate workshop at the Midwest Yoga Conference in May...loved his class (especially when he came over by me during Warrior 2 pose & introduced himself personally~plus love the song "Angie")! Instantly knowing I had to get his book. Then attended his lunchtime keynote & had him sign it. This book is AWESOME! I didn't want it to end...I can so relate to some of the stories. It also really makes you think of how to be in the moment & not to let them just pass you by. It's funny with those crazy awe moments, beautiful by feeling the love & of course delicious by just thinking about the chocolate! I have quoted several items from the book in my yoga classes & will continue to do so! I absolutely recommend this book to everyone...you won't want to put it down! You rock Dave! Peace.

Definitely a bit skeptical of "self-help"-ish books but found this to be far from the traditional. Excellent and super funny, a "real" persons guide to better living.
An absolute must read and trust me, you'll laugh out loud! Always a good thing. . . .

I couldn't put it down. It made me laugh out loud and touched my heart. David Romanelli, through sharing his personal experiences, teaches us to pay attention to our lives and find meaning in the now, amid the chaos of email, iPods and too-busy schedules. Excellent read!

I recently attended the National Cervical Cancer Coalition conference in Chicago - and picked up a copy of Dave's book Livin' the Moment after his presentation - which was fantastic - he made me laugh - he made me think - and he made me appreciate the moment. His book is just as exciting as his presentation! I had originally seen him on Chicago's WGN news segment - which made me appreciate being in his presence all the more. A super speaker, a book worth reading, and he has a great choice of chocolate for the palette. Down to earth in a way that you can appreciate what he is explaining - and easy to understand - worth the read!

My search for a book to start me moving after an injury led me to Dave's book. It was more than I ever could have imagined. What a find! At a time when I needed to laugh Dave stories made me laugh so hard I cried. Everyone will find pieces of themselves in the chapters that unfold. His honesty makes you feel as if you're reading about a long lost friend. Every story has a message that will make you stop reading and think. This book is a quick read, but you'll find yourself wanting to take small bites as if approaching a piece of decadent chocolate :). When you're finished it'll put a smile on your face and leave you open to a new way of looking at life!
