This was such an easy-read for a text book! I was impressed with how much quality information was given on each subject. Each chapter held my attention, and I was able to relate to many things throughout the book. It's informative and helpful. It definitely provides motivation and tips to get started on making changes in different areas of your life and health situations. It encourages you to set goals and teaches you ways to be successful at keeping them, for a lifetime. Great book.

Used this book to as the text while teaching Healthful Living and sophomore (college) level course about personal health. Not a bad text for studying and teaching although I think they come out with a new addition every couple fo year, which is unfortunate for those students who purchase used books.
