Thankfully, the film Pumping Iron showcased the prep for 1975 Mr. Olympia, launching acting careers for Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lou Ferrigno. They heralded a fitness revolution in which Americans grappled with the idea that physical health was more than simply the absence of sickness. Sadly, we have yet to have such a mental health revolution.
“Psychologists spend 99% of their time helping troubled people become normal. The National Institute of Mental Health should really be called the National Institute of Mental Illness: almost their entire budget goes to underwriting help for the severely troubled. Almost no money has been devoted to helping normal people reach their fullest potential and live better than normal lives.”
This book has the potential to be the missing cultural revolution of our time, the revolution of mental fitness. It’s brilliant. The inoculation of children against depression could be the beginning of a new era in our society in which we recognize that mental health is a unique journey for everyone, including those with serious debilitating diseases, but not limited to people are who ill and inclusive of everyone who wants to improve their mental/emotional states to achieve a more perfect mind/body union.
