Dec 30, 2008 Living Well Press Release

From the Emmy Award-winning television host and New York Times bestselling author, a pathway to emotional wellness.

In 1998, Montel Williams was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. In 2004, Climbing Higher, his surprisingly and sometimes brutally honest look at his struggles with the disease was released to acclaim; the book spent 4 weeks on the New York Times bestseller list and Montel was roundly praised for his openness and candor.  The fear, anxiety and depression chronicled in Climbing Higher eventually gave way to a determination to live the best life possible, so Montel began doing what he does best — fight back against adversity. LIVING WELL: 21 Days to Transform Your Life, Supercharge Your Health and Feel Spectacular, released in 2008, detailed the fitness, nutrition and lifestyle plan that has helped Montel manage his disease and lead the remarkable life he does, and spent five weeks on the New York Times bestseller list.

Now, with LIVING WELL EMOTIONALLY: Break Through to a Life of Happiness (NAL Hardcover; December 30, 2008; $24.95), Montel shares inspiration, advice, and a practical program to help readers overcome personal obstacles to find the peace and joy that everyone deserves.

From the Introduction:
“This book is about your happiness: how to understand it, how to cultivate it, and how to achieve it in your life.
I wrote this book because I am an expert on what depression and sadness feel like. You may be, too; you may feel overwhelmed or helpless, and you may have no one to turn to who understands your suffering.
Then I wrote this book for you. I’ve learned some amazing things about happiness that I want to share with you.
If you’re not depressed, but you’re interested in the idea of being happier, I wrote this book for you, too.” 

In LIVING WELL EMOTIONALLY, Montel’s own dramatic story, together with case histories and expert opinions illuminate the path to joy and emotional well-being.  As Montel puts it, “You and I deserve a life of true happiness and lasting joy. There are doorways of happiness that lie within your grasp everywhere, every day, every second of your life. Let’s open them up together – right now.”

Also look for the New York Times bestseller LIVING WELL: 21 Days to Transform Your Life, Supercharge Your Health, and Feel Spectacular, out this month in trade paperback from NAL.
