|Reviewers Comments: ||This book explores the similarities between health and wealth issues, and provides positive behavior change strategies that can be made to impact both issues. The book is designed to motivate young- and middle-aged adults to take action to improve their health and financial status. It is co-written by a registered dietitian and a certified financial planner.
Each of the twenty-five behavior changing strategies provided are described in detail and include several action steps. Many include a worksheet (or worksheets) and/or tables to help readers further understand and fully embrace the strategy. Strategies include varied approaches such as tracking your current behavior, committing to make a change, and controlling your environment. There are many suggestions for how a reader can personalize each strategy and make it his or her own.
Because of the difficult concepts, language and graphs used in this book, it is not recommended for low literacy levels. The book may be best used as a tool for nutrition educators, who can then interpret and translate the information to participants. Since the authors recommend adopting no more than three to four strategies, educators can work with participants to select and take on the strategies that will work best for them.
The end of the book contains numerous resources and references for more information on health and wealth. This book is a unique resource that can benefit educators and in multiple capacities and can help participants make positive changes in their lives.
