Combines Ancient Polynesian Wisdom with Breakthrough Scientific Research. Dr. Pearsall shows how the latest research in physical and emotional health validates the Oceanic Way--the principles and practices of ancient Polynesian cultures. The five key components of this Way are patience, connection, pleasantness, modesty and tenderness." One of Oprah's favorite guests. (from back cover)

This is one of the best books I've seen on the subject of balancing your life. It's especially good for people who tend to be workaholics, and for those who are at the opposite end of the spectrum... unmotivated.

This book explains in simple language why Work, Love and Play are all equally important elements in leading a happy, productive, and balanced life.

I highly recommend it.
