"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

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!
An absolute must read and trust me, you'll laugh out loud! Always a good thing. . . .
NCCC International Chapter Leader
This book is the funny yet poignant at the same time. I couldn't put it down, and finished it within a day (most likely scaring my neighbors with loud howls of laughter in the process). Reading the book made me appreciate the workshop even more, because Dave is exactly the same in person as he is in the book - very funny and very genuine.
I think that the best part about this book is the way Dave relates his own experiences to the messages he delivers - he is never condescending in making his points (as a lot of books like this can be). As someone who is on hyperdrive almost all the time, it was a great reminder that it's important to slow down sometimes to enjoy life's little moments.
The book is practically a steal at $10 from Amazon, and I would recommend both it and one of Dave's workshops or classes if he's in a city near you! :)
