One of the most significant books to have been written by a New Zealand business leader. Phillip Mills, the Ernst and Young Entrepreneur of the Year and a global exporter of fitness programmes to 71 countries, has spent the last year forming his views on health and fitness and sustainability into an engaging and challenging book, Fighting Globesity. All New Zealanders should read it. As Phillip jokes, "What would a couple of gym bunnies know about climate change and sustainability?" As it turns out, rather a lot. Phillip has done wide reading and research in this area over the last few years. From that he has distilled a carefully argued message: we need to get fit and stay fit, we need to consume fewer resources, we need to urgently engage with health and climate change issues - and we can make a difference. In this he may well be a step ahead of many other business thinkers. Accompanied by exercise and training programmes, nutritional information, recipes and more, FIGHTING GLOBESITY is a perfect health, fitness and philosophy package. FIGHTING GLOBESITY - A Practical Guide To Personal Health And Global Sustainability combines the Mills's experience to create a cutting-edge lifestyle prescription which will be sustainable for both the individual and the planet.
