From Publishers Weekly
It's the rare celebrity whose daily routine is an example of sane, healthy living, but the semi-famous author of this self-help volume offers up her own life as a testament to the powers of wholesome food, moderate exercise and peace and quiet. Hemingway laudably encourages readers to take time for themselves, pay attention to their own wants and prioritize relaxation over work every once in a while. She writes convincingly of the benefits of home-cooked meals and yoga, and for every lapse into pyschobabble (the author confesses to being "a classic case of a person who falls into behavioral patterns"), there's a nugget of hard-won wisdom ("It's taken me four decades to see the obvious," she writes, "I must take care of myself first"). Though some readers may have a hard time sympathizing with Hemingway's past hardships-trying to maintain a Hollywood "thin," for instance-much of her advice is easy to implement and should provide healthy returns.

What a perfect manual for healthy living, a comprehensive guide for re-inventing your ofe around four priorities: food, exercise (especially yoga, which is emphasized), silence, and home (as in a healthy and nourishing home environment)! This is a beautiful (buy the book rather than the CD) and intelligent book.
I have quite a library of fitness and healthy living books, and this really is a gem. It integrates the confusing nutritional information available today into sound principles that can be individualized to your lifestyle. It covers exercise in general, but focuses on yoga, and on being out in nature. It discusses silence, not just in your home environment, but as in eliminating "noisy foods" and other aspects of your life that are overstimulating. And lastly, it discusses your home environment, and how you can improve it whether or not you have a lot of space or a lot of money.
I read it once, highlighting and underlining it, and now am reading it a second time, deciding what I want to implement. Mariel Hemingway includes a 30-Day Quickstart Program at the back of the book, but it is also great to use as I do, to pick and choose which principles fit my lifestyle right now.
If you are looking for an all-in-one healthy lifestyle book, and truly want to change your life, as the subtitle says, "from the inside out", this is the book for you---look no further!
278 beautiful pages, highly recommended.
She has transformed her family background of depression, addiction and suicide into joy, vitality , exploration and health. She walked the path from darkness to light.
A good guide for those of us lost in the wilderness of life.
The book is truly a "lifestyle" book and not merely a diet and fitness regime. She divides the book into 4 categories - Food, Exercise, Silence and Home - and then details her prescription for healthy living in each of these categories based on her personal experience.
The book is based on the solid foundation of incorporating healthy routines in all aspects of your life, and promotes many of the same practices that so many other books out today promote, e.g., reducing sugar intake, walking, taking up yoga, etc. But Ms. Hemingway presents it in a truly unique way by integrating her own story with gorgeous photos, many self-examining questions, and brief "healthy living" summaries in each chapter. I found her chapters on the Home particularly interesting, as they incorporate the idea that your surroundings "profoundly influence your internal safe," and focus on cleaning out the clutter in your home and not just in your diet. The same can be said about the section on Silence, which goes in depth into the importance of reducing stress and finding balance in your life (and includes many suggestions for how to do so).
The book ends with a 30-day quickstart program including all 4 categories of "healthy living," which suggest such simple things as trying a new lunch or dinner recipe on a particular day (she includes recipes in the book, although I wish there were more and hope she eventually comes out with a cookbook) or walking and practicing yoga each twice per week.
Overall, this would be a lovely addition to anyone's library and provides a truly moderate and balanced perspective on what it means to live a happy and healthy life and how to go about doing so. Five stars.
