Editor’s Comments: Thanks, David Levine, for sending me this book. I stumbled onto the “whole man theory” in my 20s and later shared it with my adolescent children by having them size a four quadrant box of “spiritual, mental, physical and social” when they needed to be reminded to seek balance. In this easy to read book, authors Loehr and Schwartz 15 years ago went way beyond that simple theory. I learned a ton and was reminded of plenty of healthy disciplines to keep in mind as I try to progress in this mortal coil. It is filled with stuff you’ll want to highlight or write in your daily journal.
Favorite Excerpt: “To be fully engaged, we must be physically energized, emotionally connected, mentally focused and spiritually aligned with a purpose beyond our immediate self-interest.”
