Praise for Fit to Lead"If you want to get more out of life and lead others to do the same, I strongly recommend that you read this book."--Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., "the father of aerobics" and author of Faith-Based Fitness, from the foreword"Fit to Lead hits the nail right on the head. So many young men and women in their thirties and forties are pushing to succeed and forgetting about their body development. The end result is of course that when they get into their fifties and sixties they are unable to perform at their peak level because they haven't looked after their bodies. This book can help solve the problem, if you take it to heart and put it into action. I thoroughly recommend it."--Dr. Peter J. Daniels, founder and president of the World Centre for Entrepreneurial Studies"The best fitness book I've ever read. Fit To Lead can help the busiest person achieve their fitness goals".
As more people search for helpful hints on how to get and stay in shape, these authors offer their blueprint for success, a formula that's been used by hundreds of prominent figures, including President Bush. They base their philosophy on a quote from President John F. Kennedy: "Physical fitness is the basis for all other forms of excellence." The authors have extensive knowledge of the subject: Neck is a management professor, Mitchell served on Bush's Council on Physical Fitness and Sports, Manz is a consultant and author and Thompson teaches a course on fitness for executives. While most of their material is meant to inspire people to start exercising, change their diet and overhaul their mind (using mental imagery and self-observation), their underlying message is that if readers get their bodies into shape, their minds will soon follow. And when their minds are sharper, they become stronger leaders. The copious examples of both individuals and companies who have answered the "fit to lead" challenge validate the book's basic premise (e.g., the founder of Domino's Pizza runs four miles a day; Columbia/HCA Healthcare's CEO uses time between flights to jog around airports). Procrastinators will especially benefit from the chapter "No More Excuses," where the authors give rebuttals for every possible exercise excuse. Even the busiest executive who claims she or he has no time to exercise will find a way to change lifestyle here, and while the book is geared towards business executives, workers of all stripes will find it rewarding. (May) Forecast: St. Martin's will send the authors on a seven-city tour to promote the book. That exposure, along with national broadcast, radio and print publicity, may yield strong sales.
