Format: Hardcover
Sometimes books written by Dr.'s (Phil and Oz come to mind) can be a bit bossy, and tedious. Not the case with Dr. Jim Nicolai's book Integrative Wellness Rules. He speaks in a way that's easy to understand. Refrains from getting too preachy, and he entertains without belaboring his point, and wearing out his welcome with the reader. The book is divided up by subject, with each subject containing several rules, or theories. Each section of the book gets right to the point without wasting any time. It's a great collection of, not just, Dr. Nicolai's knowledge, but also, many leaders in the health industry who have inspired him. Leaders like Anthony Robbins, Bill Phillips, and Dr. Andrew Weil are cited and given the respect they deserve. Dr. Nicolai describes health as our destination, and wellness is the road map to get there. That is really what this book is, a road map. It's a reference manual, you are going to want to keep on hand while planning, or fine tuning your fitness journey. Whether you're just beginning that trip, or you're an old pro, Integrative Wellness Rules will be of value to you. It's very easy to get caught up in one aspect of wellness, at the expense of others. The ideas, and rules taught in this book can help you keep the whole map in perspective. It's become popular nowadays for fitness professionals to talk about, not just nutrition and exercise, but a lifestyle change. Dr. Jim Nicolai can show you exactly what to do to create that lifestyle. I received this book for free from Hay House Publishing for review purposes.

Let me begin by saying that I'm a follower, of the teachings of Andrew Weil, and have been for the last decade. I imagine this book was recommended for me based on my past purchases. Now, as a long time vegan and " naturalist" I'm always open to learning more and more about the anti- imfammatory diet, however, I purchased this book more for guidance on how to make certain changes and be my best in life. After reading this book, I feel I have some tools. I' m not on the same page as the author for certain things ( I.e. He says something to the effect of " Everything happens for a reason" and is a bit more religious than I), however, my journey through this book has made me feel empowered to slowly but surely make certain changes. In addition to the stellar content of this book,another wonderful treat is the delivery of the information. Dr. Jim ( if I may call him that!) seems like a sensitive and caring soul who aims to be his best for himself, his family, his clients,etc. I particularly enjoyed being taken through his day ( which is quite active!). I found him to be inspiring and well intentioned without being over the top. He was reminding me of my husband as I was reading! Speaking of which, I hope he will read this book as well. I believe most folks can gain something by reading "Integrative Wellness Rules" In closing, I'd like to say that if I ever have the cash to spend a few days at Miraval, I'd be appreciative for the chance to meet with Dr. Nicolai. I wish him continued success in his writing endeavors.

Dr. Nicoli offers pragmatic simple ways to improve wellness. Easy to read and then get up and do it! Some reviews thought it offered. "Nothing new".. It seems the reviewers wanted a new diet or fad. Whereas this book offers time honored tools to address all aspects of wellness not just nutrition which seems to be what sells book..the newest craze. Thanks for providing a great tool box. I might suggest more about yoga to be included in any book about wellness and lifelong health.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This is a book that is difficult to rate because it depends on which of the many possible angles you look at it. So let's start with the measurables - this book consists of 49 individual chapters and with the empty pages after some chapters, it's actually shorter than its size and page numbers suggest. All chapters and sections start on the right page, so if the previous chapter ends on a right page, the following left page is left blank. The book has a number of pop culture and sports references, starting with John Wooden and Lou Holtz in the early parts of the book.

This is a breadth, not depth type of a book. The 49 chapters cover 49 different rules, loosely coupled together in various sections. This is not a how to or a step by step book. It mostly introduces each of the 49 subjects, and it is up to you to research them further. Unless you are an expert or have read multiple books or articles or magazines of this type, you may find something useful or at least something potentially interesting to further look into. The back of the book has various references, some commercial, some for further reading.

The book has multiple references of Prayers and religion, which may encourage some and discourage others from buying it.

A couple of things that may turn off some people: if you randomly open the book at a random page, the chances are you will find some kind of cross promotion for the author's wellness center worked in the text one way or another. The other potential irritation point is the praise and references to various wellness and motivational gurus, some of which some may consider charlatans and/or Botox-filled opportunists.

Based on the above, it could perhaps be easy to dismiss the book, but it is not without merit. There is useful and helpful material. The chapters are short enough and manageable even for lazy or impatient readers. The average chapter size is somewhere between 3 and 4 pages when you factor in the empty pages.
