Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Dan Brestle President, Estée Lauder Companies A true wake-up call. At a time when the media is filled with stories of executives with warped values, this book will give you the confidence and a clear road map to tackle your problems with positive energy and moral strength.
Scott Miller President and CEO, Hyatt Corporation The principles articulated in The Power of Full Engagement have been important to me personally and as the leader of a large company. We really do have to train in business in the same way that great athletes do, learning how to peak at critical moments, but also to rest and regroup in order to build back capacity.
Marcus Buckingham Coauthor, First, Break All The Rules and Now, Discover Your Strengths Fantastic! At the heart of this book is a simple truth: the secret to lasting success -- individually and organizationally -- lies in how we manage our energy. This is a phenomenal insight that most of us ignore. Tony Schwartz and Jim Loehr provide a very practical map for marshaling our energy -- physically, emotionally, mentally, and spiritually -- to live much more productive and fulfilling lives.
Betty Edwards Author, Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain At last here's a book that takes on an endemic problem in American life: why do we never have enough time and energy for the things that matter most? In lucid, transparent, and elegant prose, the authors lay out a coherent solution with unassailable logic. I can't imagine any person who won't find a mirror image in every section of this book.
Barry Diller Chairman and CEO, USA Interactive Now, and I'm sure for the future, anything that can lead to healthier minds and bodies of executives -- and therefore to more responsible leadership -- is almost a national imperative. To that end, this book is a real contribution.
Stephen R. Covey Author, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People Tremendous! The Power of Full Engagement is a remarkable application of the athletic metaphor to high-performing people and organizations. This reader-friendly book is filled with compelling insight, real-life illustrations, and practical to-dos. Loehr and Schwartz will inspire you to increase your energy capacity in all dimensions: physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual.
“Reading The Power of Full Engagement is a gift to yourself, to your organization and to those you care about. In very direct, clear and practical ways Loehr and Schwartz give readers rituals to change their lives.”  Pat Crull, vice-president of Learning and Development, McDonald’s Corporation
