Focusing on the management of energy andthe oscillation between engagement and renewal, they have provided a road map not just to success in corporate life, but also to happiness in personal life." —Harville Hendrix, Ph.D., author, Getting the Love You Want: A Guide for Couples "This book is deceptive. You might pick it up thinking it will help you a little, but you'll discover that it can transform your entire life! If conditioning helpsTiger Woods and Larry Bird play a simple game with a ball, imagine how it can radically turbocharge the very complex skills you need to succeed at work every day." —Seth Godin, author, Survival is Not Enough "The fundamental idea that the authors richly develop here—the need to respect our oscillatory nature—is like a pebble.
