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

~ Tom Rath from Eat Move Sleep
Eat Move Sleep.
The simple, powerful keys to optimal health and well-being.
We talk about these fundamentals ALL the time and this is my new favorite book on health. And, Tom Rath is one of my new favorite teachers.
His work is backed by a TON (!!!) of scientific research and he distills it all into very simple, fun, smart, practical tips we can apply *TODAY*! (My kind of guy.) Plus, you can tell he’s just a *really* good human. Super passionate, humble, hard-working, balanced and integrated while committed to making a huge difference in the world.
I’m excited to share some of my favorite Big Ideas:
1. Eat Move Sleep - Work on all three simultaneously.
2. 10,008 Hours + 36 Minutes - For peak performance.
3. Candy for Cancer Cells - 150 lbs of sugar = not good.
4. Want to Improve? - Measure!
5. Buy Willpower - At the store.
I hope you enjoyed this quick look at a great book. Here’s to optimizing our fundamentals as we actualize our potential in greatest service to the world!

I would like to mention that a reviewer called it "subjective" but in the back there are a boatload of links that are in reference to the author's claims. Therefore, if one is skeptical about anything they can independently verify the author's findings. But I can see where this reviewer (and probably others) found this text subjective. The author talks about himself and his habits a good amount of the time. It's irritating, but certainly doesn't make this book "subjective" because his main claims are presumably scientific.
Some of the research he cites is surprising, but it's also interesting. Some of it seems to contradict other studies on the same subject, but it's like one doctor says one thing, and the other one says something else. You get to be your own authority. It is also fun to read.
I recently read "Get Up! Why Your Chair Is Killing You and What You Can Do About It" by Dr James Levine. It too, is in that top six. Both "Get Up!" and "Eat Move Sleep" promote sane, cutting-edge, doable things most of us need to change about our lives.
In my fifties I was still teaching drama and dance (and moonlighting as an Iyengar Yoga instructor). When a divorce, broken foot, and back injury had me down for a year, I started editing screenplays from home. In a recliner. I had to use a walker to get to the bath and the kitchen. And I ate whatever I could grab and carry back to the recliner. It's gotten better. With the incredibly motivating information in the two books mentioned, I'm off the walker, standing at a tall laptop desk to edit, sitting on a balance ball when I have to give my back a rest, and moving around the kitchen each day in order to make a fresh salad with lots of fruits and veggies.
I won't go on ... you get the idea. If "Eat Move Sleep" and "Get Up!" can motivate a stubborn broad like me, I guarantee it'll motivate you to change your life for the better. (By the way, I'm going to be back on campus teaching drama again next semester, and playing electric guitar at local L.A. gigs. Thank you, Tom Rath!)
