An Invitation to Health is the market-leading personal health book that introduces readers to the latest research, information, and recommendations related to health and healthy lifestyles. Consistently praised for its instructional and engaging writing style, An Invitation to Health: Choosing to Change focuses on behavior change, the prevention of illness and the achievement of optimal health and wellness.

Current, comprehensive, and personal, Dianne Hales's An Invitation to Health: Choosing to Change integrates a comprehensive presentation of health concepts with a wealth of practical ways to apply them to your life--body, mind, and spirit. With the complete textbook program, you have an outstanding set of tools to help you understand the positive benefits of good health behaviors and master the steps that empower you to accomplish that change in your own life.

Each chapter includes content and applications such as "Learn It/Live It," "Goal Setting," "Your Strategies for Change," "Your Strategies for Prevention," and "Your Life Change Coach" sections, all of which help you on your way to setting and attaining your goals for a healthier lifestyle. Because personal choice is an important component of changing for lifelong healthy living, the text also includes "Reality Check" and "Point/CounterPoint," two new features designed to sharpen your critical thinking and analytical skills--the keys to making informed choices for positive change.

Along the way, An Invitation to Health, 2009-2010 Edition, provides relevant examples, colorful photos, figures, and new research and statistics, as well as "Student Snapshots," art, tables, and references that reflect the most current thinking on every topic.
