Product description


“<I>The Greatest College Health Guide You Never Knew You Needed</I> is a necessity to have on hand as you begin navigating campus life. While providing practical tips on how to make overall healthy decisions, Jill and Dave Henry provide insights on how to figure out what really works best for you. This book is <B>a much-needed map full of personal experiences of trial and error, humor, and the real facts about college life they don’t teach you at orientation.”</B><BR> ―Katie Shin, College Student Services Professional, M.Ed.<BR><BR> “As an Olympic athlete, I did not attend college until I was in my late twenties. Even then, <I>The</I> <I>Greatest College Health Guide</I> would have come in handy! Jill and Dave’s personal anecdotes make this guide relatable and make the challenge of adjusting to life on campus seem manageable and even fun. <B>Their advice is practical, holistic, as well as entertaining. They get it. </B><I>The</I> <I>Greatest College Health Guide </I>is definitely a good way, if not the greatest way, to achieve physiological, psychological, academic, and athletic success during your college years.”<BR> ―Hannah Kearney, Olympic Gold Medalist & Certified Personal Trainer<BR><BR> “One of the best health/wellness books I've read. The engaging authors go so far beyond a dry ‘how-to’ plan―instead, it's a comprehensive guide to the wellness pillars a college student will inevitably want and need to grapple with: chapters discuss food, booze, exercise, sleep, stress, and relationships, and, importantly, they give equal airtime to mental health, too. This book also happens to be incredibly well-written, fun, and funny―<B>the authors are vulnerable, relatable, and sometimes self-deprecating, and their personal stories woven in throughout bring to life every topic they write about.</B> According to Jill and Dave Henry, good health is fluid and a work in progress: and it's never too late―or too early―to start a lifetime of good habits.”<BR> ―Helaine Knapp, Founder & CEO, CityRow<BR><BR><B>“This is an informative and entertaining tool for incoming college students. </B>As many learn when they first arrive to college, it’s not as easy as they thought. This book will help students navigate how to avoid the freshmen 15, learn about alcohol intake, how important sleep is, and much more. All the while, they can still have a great college experience. The book gives funny examples of real-life pitfalls and how and why you want to avoid them. The quotes from fellow students across the country experiencing similar challenges allow the reader to know they are not alone. <I>The Greatest College Health Guide</I> is a great moving companion for students leaving home and heading off to college.”<BR> ―Kai Felton, Division I Women's Basketball Coach<BR><BR> “As a health educator, psychology professor, and researcher, I have read hundreds of books, research articles, and other media designed to share essential health information. However, I have yet to come across such a strong compendium of all the essential information on key topics in one place: diet, exercise, sleep hygiene, stress and time management, social media and relationships, alcohol use and abuse, as well as mental health issues like managing depression. Its second strength is being so adeptly voiced for the target audience. The information is science-based and resounds with commonsense strategies. <B>Finally, here is a book that feels genuinely authentic about what students face</B>―brought to life with frank anecdotes and quotes from the college experiences of the authors and students in colleges across the country. A wonderfully smart, funny, highly readable and relatable book.&#34; --Martha Hart-Johns, Psychology Professor, Health Educator, and Researcher<BR><BR> “<I>The Greatest College Health Guide You Never Knew Y --This text refers to the hardcover edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Mandatory Reading BEFORE Starting College!
Reviewed in the United States on 4 June 2021
I am a family physician who has worked on a college campus for the past 7 years, and I seriously wish I could make this book MANDATORY reading for every freshman. Frankly, I’d make the frats & other party-heavy organizations read the booze & sex chapters multiple times & discuss at their weekly meetings for at least the fall semester! Kudos to the authors for writing such a practical, easy-to-read guide that helpfully addresses the major obstacles for college students. Their candor about their own painful experiences blends beautifully with quotes from current students, and their straightforward explanations and solution strategies are excellent. Full disclosure, I’m the author of The ULTIMATE College Student Handbook, a head-to-toe health guide (also available on amazon) that frankly pairs beautifully with this book, The GREATEST College Health Guide! Parents, think of the investment you are making with your child’s tuition bills. Arming your student with books like these will go a long way towards smoothing out the inevitable bumps in the road throughout their college journey.
PS. Don’t forget to buy copies for yourself, too, so you have a helpful reference at your fingertips when you get those panicked late night texts!
